6th Grade Band Off to A Great Start
The 2016-2017 school year is off to a great start in the 6th grade band. 130 band students are learning to play instruments for the first time, and they are have already progressed quite a bit. Band Directors Adam Borst, Ryan Miller, and student teacher Adam Ronning are very impressed with the students’ abilities so far, and are looking forward to another great year of band at Red Hawk Elementary.
The budding instrumentalists are playing flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, baritone, and percussion, and will later have the chance to try tuba, French horn, and alto saxophone. The students will perform 3 full band concerts this year: November 17th, February 9th, and May 18. There is also a solo event on January 26th. All concerts start at 7:00 pm, and are performed in the High School Auditorium.
