From the Bleachers:Band Concert and Awards

On May 17, 2007, the Rittman High School Band gave their final concert band performance of the 2006-2007 school year. Musical fare for this evening was, as always indicative of the hard work and dedication shown all years from Mr. Sims and all the student musicians. Selections were as follows:
Vikings Victorious Concert March, by Chris Sharp
First Suite in Eb for Military Band. by Gustav Holst, arrangement by Robert Longfield
Festivo, by Vaclav Nelhybel
and lastly, Cajun Cookin, By Bruce Pearson



In the midst of the performance, Awards were presented to the band for their extraordinary performances this year and several band members were recognized for their continued participation.

And speaking of being awarded for continued particapation, LuAnn of the World's Greatest Band boosters(WGBB) was recognized for her five years of volunteer service and leadership in the support the boosters provide to the band throughout the year. Brenda then urged those in attendance to get involved and attend at least one meeting. Remember the WGBB will be serving a spaghetti dinner at the high school on June 1.

Mr. Sims also made mention of this blog and my service as announcer during halftime shows.
