News From the Band Room
ELCO RAIDER BAND
Hi Folks - Well the band hit it out of the park with their performances on Friday night and especially at the Lebanon County Band Exhibition! The crowd went crazy for our show and I received many compliments from all over. The kids should be very proud of their accomplishment. Unfortunately, the night was cut short by lightning and rain. I'm sorry we did not get to see the other high school bands perform, but I was impressed with the contagious energy and enthusiasm of our ELCO kids as we hunkered down in Cedar Crest's gym. Hopefully you caught pictures and videos on social media of our ELCO Band leading songs and cheers. The kids also got a pre-wash getting onto the buses to come home. It was a night they will never forget.
This week we head to the great state of Mount Joy to take on the Donegal Indians and the battle of the war chants. The football team is on a roll and we hope it continues. It is Donegal's Homecoming night, so we will be performing pre-game on Friday. Report time on Friday is 4:30pm, Inspection is at 4:45pm and Departure will be 5:00pm. Students may stay after school and a meal will be served at 4:00pm.
As always, if you have any questions, please email Mr. Fair firstname.lastname@example.org
A BIG THANKS to all of the parents who helped out not only for our performances this past weekend, but also at the LLMEA County Chorus auditions. Mrs. Fair and I realize that it was a LOOOOONGG day on Saturday, but we are ever grateful for the help with food, equipment, organization, and execution of everything this past weekend. Thank you for the food, treats, cookies and everything else you provide for the band. We can not do all of this without your help! Mrs. Fair and I received many compliments from directors on how helpful the parents were and how well they were treated. You have helped to make ELCO the place to be for auditions and festivals.
