Just before school starts...

Last night was the marching band's performance for their families. Percussion units have been practicing since mid-July; the rest of the band and color guard have been learning new music and performance moves since the beginning of August. All their hard work really shows! It was a wonderful performance -- in sections and all together!

Here is the drumline with the rest of the percussion section in front of the stage. They are all just marvelous!

Here the entire band is playing, being directed by the three drum majors (standing on the raised stands). The drumline was still on stage, and the rest of this very large band was encircling the audience, mostly in double rows. The sound was amazing, and the quality of their performance was wonderful. They are fantastic, anyway, and to be this good after less than 4 weeks of practice as a whole is just awesome!

The color guard flag girls performed for a couple of minutes (next two photos).

And here are the members of the color guard who perform with "rifles" --

I can't wait for the first football game so we can see all of them performing all together!
