I play the saxophone!!! I have had so many awesome experiences through our music program. Out of 1800 students at my school, almost half are involved in some sort of music class throughout the day.
Our band is a "parade" band. We are not a competition band. Meaning, we do not compete with our football fieldshow, however, we do A LOT of parades!! This will be the fourth time that our band has been invited to the rose bowl parade.
Tom, that is amazing!!! My band director, Mr. Soucy, loves Mr. Sousa's music! haha Our marching band puts the trombones in the back, but before the drumline. We lead with piccolos, then clarinets, saxs, trumpets then trombones. We are so large however, sometimes we split the band in half and put half of all those instruments behind the drumline.
In the spring our Jazz ensemble, chorus, and orchestra will be traveling to Florida to perform in Disney. I will be going on that trip and it will be my first time flying with Diabetes so I'm sure I'll be back to ask about travel too!!
