Concert Band Assemble

The concert band started practice at 7:00 o'clock sharp on August 22, 2008. As Mr. Harris, the band teacher, said "we do not except lateness, we start right on time" They have just started to get to know each other and working on building up skill as one band. They meet Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday; but also have to practice 150 minutes a week at home. The first performance for the Concert band is The Fall Concert on October 13, 2008. While talking with Mrs. Mayer, the music department director, she mentioned that she is very excited for this year making it her thirteenth year working here at Judge. She said, "We are going to make this year a great year" While asking her what her goals are for this year she mentioned "I hope that they will be able to perform a lot and play some new things" But Mrs. Mayer is not the only one with a couple of goals. Danny Sayer, a clarinet player for the Concert Band, said, "I hope to strengthen my ombershure and scale performance." Overall the band has assembled and is ready to begin its playing for another great year.
