Welcome to the Wolf-Tones Website

Wolf-Tones (officially known as the SRVHS Instrumental Music Foundation) is the music booster group for San Ramon Valley High School supporting the long and illustrious history of instrumental music we are so fortunate to have at this school!

 

Wolf-Tones Monthly Update – October 2019

 

Please join us for the next Wolf-Tones Booster group meeting on Monday, October 7th at 7 pm in D-103

 

A HUGE THANK YOU to the Gazarian Family for hosting the 2nd pre-game marching ensemble dinner and the Wisser Family for hosting our 3nd pre-game dinner!  They opened their homes to all 63 of our marching ensemble members and got them fed and on their way to back to school in time for the game.

THANK YOU TO BOTH FAMILIES!
