Home / School News / Tuscola And Waynesville Band Students Join Together In Inaugural Event

 

On Thursday February 9, band students from Tuscola High School and Waynesville

Middle School met for the Inaugural Tuscola Band Day. Students rehearsed in a

combined band throughout the day leading up to a concert that evening.

Throughout the day the students were able to work with high school directors Tim

Wise and Dillon Ingle as well as Middle School directors Adam Stewart and Jaime

Graeber. The students prepared some great music ranging from Danny Boy to an

arrangement of music from the latest Star Wars movies.

This event was a great opportunity to bring the two programs together. It gave the

middle school students a chance to play with students from Tuscola and gave the

high school students a chance to work with students from Waynesville Middle.

Waynesville Middle School band director, Adam Stewart, had this to say. “This is a

fantastic opportunity for our students to work together and push each other to

perform some great music in a very short amount of time.”

Tuscola director, Tim Wise, is excited about the bands performing together. “One of

the great benefits of doing this event is that the middle school students get a chance

to see what high school band is like before class registration begins. The students

really have gotten to see that band is not just a middle school program or a high

school program but instead is one united program that grows from the time the

students begin playing an instrument in sixth grade to the time the walk across the

stage as graduating seniors.”

Combined the Tuscola and Waynesville Middle School students had 29 students

represented in All District Band and All Region Jazz Band. These two programs have

experienced a great deal of success in the past and it is easy to see that with the hard

work of these students and directors the tradition is sure to continue.
