August 13th was Band Parent Night for the Hawk Band. Burgers and chips were served to the families and then the kids got on the practice field to show us what they had been learning during summer band.
Here is our Hawk trombonist /euphonium, Clark, looking cool in the hat his Uncle Tom gave him!
The kids have been doing a form of jazzercise as a warm up as part of summer band, only they call it "Troycacise" after someone that introduced it to the band programs. They called for parents to go on the practice field to do the warm up with their band kid. Lucky Ed got to be the one from our family. Lucky me got to take some pictures!!
Here is Clark with his section and close ups with the Euphonium.
Next family members were invited to join their band kids on the practice field to try marching. Lucky Mason got to try it this year!
