Color Guard and marching band perform in parent preview
Color Guard and marching band performed at â€śWaffles and Coffee,â€ť a parent preview of future performances on Tuesday, Aug. 22 at the field.
The performance introduced the theme for this year, â€śShadows and Lightâ€ť, and allowed parents of students in Color Guard and marching band to preview the teamsâ€™ progress. Color Guard and marching band showcased a one-minute, semi-formal performance together involving basic routines while complementary waffles and coffee were served to parents as they spectated.
â€śI hope our parents can see that their kids are truly learning and gaining new experience and doing something they love,â€ť Color Guard member junior Scarlett Chen said. â€śParents can see that all the time and effort they have put in for their kids to participate in band and Color Guard are worth it.â€ť
Practices had been held throughout summer camp and on Tuesday nights from 5-9 p.m. since the school year began. Although the performance only previewed 2-3 minutes of the entire show, Color Guard and marching band have already learned half of it.
â€ś[It was] enlightening because before this night, it never really hit me as to how much we truly got done,â€ť clarinetist sophomore Ethan Ho said. â€śI feel as though this helped us realize how far we’ve come in the past weeks and how far we still have to go before the show is perfect.â€ť
