The band section leaders represent their pride during media day.

Since the latest members joined the grizzly band, they have witnessed a remarkable growth in both size and sound. It is worth noting that their performance titled “Arabian Nights” has become an absolute sensation among the audience. 

All the freshman are excited for their first season of marching band.

“As a freshman, I think it’s really fun and I like marching with the band,” Mckaya Little (Clarinet) said. 

The band’s seniors are feeling a mix of emotions as they come to the realization that this year will bring a close to their incredible journey in the program.

Dominic Humphrees, the snare drum player, expresses his gratitude for the marching band, emphasizing the profound bonds that are formed among its members.

“I love the people you meet, and the connections made in band,” Humphrees said.

“I can’t believe how much we’ve grown as a program,” Kaden J. Pyatt (Drum Major) said. “I love every one in band; we’re like a big family.” Pyatt said.

“Hanging out and being together, that’s the best part of being in band; everyone in the band agrees. The connections and people you befriend are the best part of the band.” Pyatt said.

Frank Randazzo, a member of the guard, expressed his admiration for the remarkable teamwork and unity displayed by all the guards as they collaborate to create an unforgettable final show.

“I love the teamwork and unity between every single guard member working together to make the final show,” Randazzo said.

Olivia Stenberg and Karly Tinker captivate the audience with their breathtaking performance in the opening solos of “Arabian Nights,” perfectly embodying the mysterious atmosphere of the show.

In addition to Stenberg and Tinker’s incredible solos, the band’s trumpet players, Andrew Sizemore and Jeremy Bushman, along with their talented trombonists, Ike Estep and Jackson Moutlton, deliver outstanding performances during their respective solos.

Stenberg leads the saxophones and bass clarinets as their head saxophone and section leader, while Tinker takes charge as the head clarinet and their section leader. Additionally, Sizemore assumes the role of head trumpet.

The band is thrilled with their growth and accomplishments over the past three years and are eagerly looking forward to the opportunities that this season holds.

“It’s a challenging year, but I think we have been and will make it a great show,” Coen Olexa (Sousaphone) said.

In their most recent competition, the band won second in their division and third place overall. They won three of the five total captions in our division. The best auxiliary, the most outstanding percussion, and the absolute best music. 

They are excited for all their hard work to pay off at state in a few weeks.
