New Members

Hello and Welcome!

I'd like to send a very special welcome to any new and prospective band members. There's room for everyone in the band! My name is Danna Mitchell and I have been the Saint Francis band director since the fall of 2003 and I've loved every minute of it! In my humble opinion, there isn't a better group of kids on campus.


Being in band is a fun and rewarding experience. Many students will testify that being a part of the band program greatly adds to your overall Saint Francis experience. It's an excellent way to get involved with the Saint Francis community and you will, without a doubt, have the opportunity to create friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.

The band program has a lot to offer so take a moment to check out some of our pictures, music programs, ensemble descriptions, band handbook or even our event calendar. If you need more information, please feel free to e-mail me at or call the band office at 650 968-1213, ext. 241 anytime. Have a great year and welcome to Saint Francis!
