Band Notes 22/23

March 6 to 12


Another awesome performance by our group in Ellensburg at the CWU Windfest. Wonderful praise from our adjudicators that included Dr. T. Angré Feagin of CWU and Dr. Andrea Brown from the University of Maryland. I truly hope these inspiring performances motivate you to become an even better musician and that you realize the inspiration and influence you have on all those you perform for!

Thanks so much to all of you for your efforts and commitment to the details and level of musicianship we are pursuing. It ultimately creates and incredible experience for our audiences and ourselves!

Thank you to our chaperones Carrie Babcock, Kori & Matt Baker, and Mark Rodewald! They were incredible in supporting our students (and me :D).

Thank you to our friends and peers (and my own kiddo) from Ridgeline HS, and other schools from our state in supporting our performances! It was so great to share music with students also interested in band!


Anyone interested in making a couple of this items for us?! The pictured version is using 1" x4" would that is better-served built from hard wood, and another version with 2"x 4". You can see handles as well as a hinged connection at the base. They can be 18" to 24" in length.
