This past week has been filled with excitement!
On Saturday, March 12th, marching band veterans and newbies met in the band room at 8:00 A.M. to participate in the first of three marching band interest camps. Students from 7th to 11th grade grouped into what could be their section family in the upcoming season. The rookies learned the stretch routine, participated in team building exercises and games, and even rehearsed the new opener of our 2016 marching band show. Everyone had tons of fun and we recruited lots of people!

But on Monday, high school concert band students prepared themselves for the most dreadful week of the semester- playing test week. Every student was tested on their abilities to play four major scales (Db, Gb, G, D) and five SUPER EXCITING SCALE EXERCISES (!!!!!!!!!!!) in five different keys. Alas, all good things must come to an end, and Friday is the last day of playing test week. But in the end, we all increased our skill in the art of playing fourths in Eb, and that’s all that matters.
