Way to go band! So proud of all of our students, parents, and staff on a great season. We set a goal of making finals at the Lafayette Marching Classic, where we competed against some outstanding band programs. It was a very rewarding day to score high enough and perform a second time. The electricity that the students performed with during our second performance was purely magical! What a fantastic finish to a very rewarding competitive marching season. Numerous people complimented our show and stated that ours was their favorite. Very proud of our students for being entertaining and classy!
Congratulations band on a wonderful day! I hope that you will cherish the memories that we made yesterday for the rest of your lives. I will never forget being asked at Senior Night by Dr Albertus while we were warming up to perform our entire show because so many fans had attended the game specifically to see our marching show! Then only a week later being asked by Troup County’s Band Director if we would perform our entire show for his students and community. We have created something very special together this year and I am very proud of everyone who made it possible! From our staff brainstorming, Mr. Huls arranging and creating drill, parents creating and designing props, Mr. Kuykendall creating an amazing wizard, guard parents creating flags, lots of volunteers to chaperone, load equipment, haul equipment, stage props, create special effects, to Mr. Robichaux designing electronics as an extra layer of music, and everyone who played a role in making this happen this year! You’ve created a very special show that will always be remembered!
Woodward’s director has asked that we present at least part of our competition show because he has heard so much about it and wants his students to be able to see us. That game is not until next week, but this week I think it would be good to perform part of our show too, which will allow our students to have some time off this week. We will only rehearse after school on Thursday from 3:15PM-5:00PM. No rehearsal on Monday or Tuesday of this week. Here is the itinerary for Friday’s game.
