Band Camp – Week One

This year’s GRC Marching Band is off to a great start, having learned about 2:15 of their show so far, marching and playing. In addition to great kids, we’ve also had a lot of parent support this year, with two camp dinners provided, Gatorade donations, and an on-site EMT! I think the kids even had Popsicles 3 days this week…

The best thing about this week was definitely the attitude shown by the members, especially at the end of the day Friday. We had freshman practicing their spots during break, and even reminding their friends to take their horns home this weekend so they don’t forget what’s been learned. From a Freshman! This band is really starting to “get it”.
