Message from the Director
Hello Walkersville Families!
Welcome to the 2017 Season of the Walkersville Marching Band!
It is my sincerest joy to be your director at Walkersville High School. I am beyond excited for this coming school year and this marching season! We have some great music picked out and some amazing potential for drill! Most of all, I am excited because of the passion I have seen and the hard work that I have heard about that the student musicians at Walkersville High School display!
This is a year of growth and pushing forward! We will have many new participants who are eager to join. We have many returning members who want improve every year. I will hold all members to a high standard of excellence, a standard that I derive from the students own hunger to perform to their best ability. We will provide our audiences with the best musical product we are able to create, and it is our responsibility as musicians to do so.
Our Marching Band will participate in Region 5 of the Tournament of Bands circuit. We are scheduled to perform at four competitions and Regional Championships. We will also perform at all home football games and several community parades. The Marching Band will perform at school pep rallies and visit schools in our feeder pattern for recruitment purposes. This ensemble is the most visible ensemble for the community. Marching Band is both a musical and physical activity.
This will be a great year for our program and I look forward to the upcoming marching season. We will all be required to give our full commitment, students and staff, to be successful. Despite the hardships over the course of the season, I promise you will become a stronger musician and a better person.
