This last Tuesday many students were lucky enough to enjoy a day at the Nebraska State Fair and to play in the parade. We all hopped on to the bus and made a trip to Grand Island, Nebraska where we would play one of our new pieces, La Fiesta del Tigre. The piece by Mike Story is a beloved marching composition and is used across the states as a way to pump up the crowd and show school spirit. Overall, it was a good day with the band!
We played pretty well and the crowd really seemed to enjoy our rendition of La Fiesta Del Tigre. Our drum majors, AJ Garrelts and Hollie Sell work extremely hard to push us to be the best that we can be. We have been practicing a lot during our school time and hitting the streets almost every day. The State Fair was a really good practice for what may be our best year at Harvest of Harmony yet.
