Band has had a great season this year and has always been a group of people that has warmed the schools heart with their performances at every pep rally and football game. It is especially a meaningful year for all the seniors in band.

Being a senior in band is a lot different than being a freshman, sophomore or even a junior in band it brings on new responsibilities and new leadership roles.

“Being a senior in band doesn’t give you entitlement but rather makes you feel more knowledgeable. I knew that I could help others but still be a team player,” clarinet player Ramya Srikanth, 2016, said.

By far as a school many have agreed that this year’s show, “Framed,”  was fantastic and many of the band members agree that this was their favorite show by far and meant a lot to be able to be apart of it.

“I love this year’s show. It has to be my favorite. Even though I have liked all the ones in the past, this show tops all of them because as a band we all put in so much into it and once we put everything together it was amazing. Couldn’t have asked for a better show,” trombone player Kyle Manos,2016, said.

The band made it all the way to the finals and were competing to go to state however, they ended up not making the cut placing 9th overall. Even though the seniors were all sad about not making it they were overall so proud of their band.

“Our first run was not our best run but it helped motivate us for our final run which ended up being our best run of the show ever and I couldn’t have been more proud of that,” saxophone player David Gonzales, 2016, said.

The seniors in band have put in so much work and are all sad that this is their last marching season in their high school careers.

“I’m pretty sad that this was my last season but happy that we all put in work to make it a good one,” Srikanth said.

Along with this being the seniors last marching season, many have begin to reminisce on all their fun times in band and their favorite memories.

“After we won the centennial competition this year as a band we got into a giant circle and Daniel DeAnda and myself led a giant hype circle. This is just one of many great memories,” Manos said.

Going through it all, all the seniors are overall happy to leave such lasting impacts on the rest of the band and just want them to get better and better after they graduate. They hope to come back to see that impact still there.

“If I had to give one piece of advice to the next incoming class of freshmen that are going to be in band it would be, don’t think about winning, make the most out of the time, and remember that what matters most in the end is the memories you’ll take with you when it’s all over,” Gonzales said.
