Marching Band Parent Night

Last Friday night, the HHS Band invited parents out to see what the teens had learned during summer band. First they played some football stand tunes. For this part, Clark was on his trombone. (He is the second boy in.)
Next, they played the marching show music.
For this, Clark was on his baritone.
I like these next three shots. The kids have marched a section of the show for us and then have to return to they beginning dot. Ed took three pictures in secession of Clark ( and other band members) running back to his dot.
The last part of the night was a lot of fun. Each band member is asked to bring a parent or sibling out on the field to teach them a few steps of the marching show. Ed and I have both participated in this in the past years so this year Clark went straight to Mason. It was fun to watch the big brother teaching the little brother!
Clark shows him how to hold the baritone at attention.
Then he shows Mason where to stand.
Then Mason gets to try a few steps on his own!
(This was really fun for Mason who will be a member of this band next year!)
It was a fun night for both boys, and we are so proud of Clark with all his band success!
