What a football game, and how about that band!

Last nights Santiago High School varsity football game was a nail bitter.  The Santiago High School Marching Band led the night with lots of highly spirited music.   The band was joined with three intermediate school bands from the area… El Cerrito, Corona Fundamental, and Citrus Hills.  The combined bands put on an excellent half-time show under the direction of Kris Parish and Joe Dudek.   I can’t forget to mention the band directors from the intermediate schools Laura Hamlin , Kevin McGee and Shawn Baker were there to coordinate the students from their respective bands.  It was a well executed event and a great experience for the intermediate school students to get a “vibe” of what it’s like to perform in a football game half-time show.  Thanks to all of the directors for their efforts in the production of this yearly experience for all to enjoy!  The football team walked away with a slim defeat against a really tough team,  but expressed their appreciation by moving to the band section.  The football team then acknowledged the band’s school spirit.  I couldn’t think of a better way to end the game.   Nice job guys.

Thanks Corona-Norco School District!

Ok,  so you are off to a great start with band this year.  Only to find that the school board has cut the budget and your band is in dire straits.  Fortunately for those students that attend school in the Corona-Norco School district.    They have the luxury of having a school district that embraces the arts as part of their core curriculum.  So the chances of band being cut from the school budget… just isn’t going to happen.  With that said.  I believe all band students and their parents should thank the district for making a wise decision in embracing the arts.   The Corona-Norco disctrict  understands that a well rounded program in our schools is paramount to a students success beyond the K-12 years.  In a time when there are so many cut backs everywhere.  I applaud the Corona-Norco School district for their dedication to the arts.  Take some time to drop them a letter, or phone call the superintendent to show your solid support.  The phone number for the Superintendent’s office  (951) 736-5010. Their website is at Corona-Norco School District.
