marching band

It's football season, and with high school football comes marching band


I've been practicing for almost a month for the first game tonight. I play the drums to songs like Shaft, Birdland, and Get it On to name a few.

Anyone else do marching band?

eh, heh.

I am in marching band. I play...clarinet! =P

Seriously, I do I play the clarinet. Hehe, third chair this year in Symphonic Band which is quite a step up for me and also my last year of high school, just applied to college(University of Central Florida).

Anyways, we got two weeks till our first football game. Rehearsals Tuesday-Thursday at 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm.

Our show is a classical themed show. We are playing Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, In the Halls of the Mountain King(drum feature/part horns), Nimrod from Engima Variations, and Bizet's Farandole. Pretty good show and I love the drill. We are going to three competitions this year so it will be an interesting year for me.

YES

A lot of clarinets here dread the alto clarinet...for some reason.

I did play bass clarinet my freshman year but we had a director change and I went back to clarinet my sophmore year. Oh well, I like since we are playihng rather difficult music this year.

I'm in marching band. I play trumpet...the best instrument you can have in a marching band.

We've been practising since the third week of July, that was band camp. The week after that we practised everyday from 8-12, 1-4, and 6-9. Since then we have been practising everyday from 8-12, except for Wednesdays when we practise from 8-12, and from 1-4.

We also just had our first football game yesterday, but we had to leave early because of thunder storms.

If life calls and you're busy, let the answering machine pick-up.

Just so you know, my previous avatar was NOT a swastika, nor did it have much similarity to one. Just thought I'd clear that up since I cannot use my own original art work.

I'm in marching band...hehe... I play the saxophone...I used to play the clarinet, but I switched because I was REALLY bored of it (5 years and I'd have enough) and the band director wouldn't let me play alto clarinet...claimed he didn't have any music for it......

Fish: my band would kick your band's ass if your football team hadn't appeared to have changed divisions...lol.

There is the band website...although it has not been updated in like over a year..

There are some pictures of me in it but only the few who have seen me could identify me(or not).
