The 7th and 8th band performed at the opening day ceremony for Thompson Little League on Saturday, April 16th. The students performed a collection of marches, short pep band songs, and also played the Star Spangled Banner from center field. The students did a tremendous job considering that this was the first time that any of them had marched. Unfortunately, the band was unable to perform last year, which meant this year’s 8th graders were learning from the beginning just like the 7th graders. Adding to the challenge, our first outdoor rehearsal was a snow day and our second one was rained out! You would never know it by how well the band did. The students learned quickly and really enjoyed playing outside. It was a terrific experience for our young musicians and they look forward to performing again next year!
