Band students from fifth to 12th grades will perform together tonight in the Carson City School District's annual Band-o-Rama.
The free, hour-long concert begins at 7 p.m. in the Carson High School gym.
The concert showcases the district's band students, but also gives students a chance to see what music programs are available to them in the future.
Band-o-Rama, in its 18th year, brings bands from all school levels together for one mighty performance.
Each grade level performs a few numbers then they all combine for a grand finale.
Every year, said Empire Elementary School music teacher Christina Bourne, the stands are packed.
"Music is something that allows everyone to be a part of it," she said. "The community supports this. They know how much the students need music programs."
