Recently, I was speaking to a parent about their child's experience in Marching Band last year. Reportedly, this child had that excited anticipation that my kids get when they're waiting for Santa Claus. She said, "It's like Christmas Eve!"
I share their excitement--and honestly, how could you not share that excitement? Ten new members in guard and percussion. Several new wind members coming Monday. It truly is an exciting time to be associated with the Trinity Band.
Bigger than that, it's a truly exciting time to be in the Trinity Music Department. We just had a STANDING-ROOM ONLY crowd at a Grade 6–12 Chorus Concert, and we're planning similar events with Band and Orchestra next year to sell the product and increase our ensemble sizes at THS. All of the pieces are there to make this program great.
When making social media posts about this year's band, I'm asking that you use #thsgoingbeyond so that we can track the excitement.
Monday's Rookie Camp is coming fast. At this point, it's less than 3 days away, and it feels a bit like Christmas Eve to me. Our staff is ready. Our leadership is ready. Bring on the year!
