Paoli Fall Festival Parade. On September 10, the Paoli Fall Festival Parade took place. “As far as scoring is concerned - we were the ONLY band at our Fall Festival Parade - so it was easy to be in "1st Place," Said Mr. Laughlin, The Pride of Paoli Band Director. 25 to 30 years ago, many bands came to the local town parades and participated. In 1999, we had 10 bands at the Mitchell Persimmon Festival ... for it was their 150th anniversary and they paid the bands to come).
Taking the field the Evolution “East Peoria Marching Raiders, you may take the field in competition.” During the four years of high school, I was able to get involved with the East Peoria High School Band program. The marching band has evolved since I joined in 2011 and it has been improving each year. My freshman year we used to march trombones, I was probably the worst one on the field when it came to the marching aspect. There was a lot of foundation work being planted as I learned the terms, how to read drill, remembering counts, memorizing music, managing homework on long Tuesday night rehearsals and most importantly how to enjoy oneself in the midst of a struggle. This was just the first year!
The Monterey Pop Music festival was a concert that held for three day from June 16 to June 18. Thousands of people attend the concert to watch the musical performance by bands or singer that they love. Many popular bands involve in performing their own songs or covers such as The Who, Simon and Garfunkel, Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. Simon and Garfunkel is my most favorite artist. They both born in 1941 and attended same school.
My background is firmly concreted in the band community. I had no idea that joining the band as a tenor saxophone player in sixth grade would have such a remarkable effect on me. My teachers and I have noticed my growth, driven by my dedication to what I love. I have worked hard within my supportive band association to achieve my goals. Of my ultimate goals was to make one of the most exclusive bands in Nebraska.
Have you ever went on a trip to Chamberlain? Well if you have you, probably didn’t go for the reason I did. Last year near the middle/end of the year I went on my first choir trip to Chamberlain to sing at the school. I went with two of my teachers and peers in my choir class. About a week and a half in advance we got told we were going to Chamberlain to sing.
Just as in warmups this choir wows me again. Most choirs I’ve ever been apart of you have to start with continuously pounding out the notes and rhythms. This choir can pick up a sheet of music and sing through the whole song with impressive note accuracy. That excites me as I’m finally in a choir that’s not held back by slow learning singers and we can dig right into the music. I’m so excited for what my high school choir experience could bring me.

The first plays I was ever in were musicals, and that’s how I found my love for singing. I was encouraged by all of the amazing staff members at Artsview to pursue acting and singing. Now I have made the Texas All-State Women’s Choir three out of four years in high school. My sophomore year of high
This coming summer I will have the incredible and exciting opportunity to go and see Chicago in concert. Throughout my high school career, I was in a chamber choir. My director, born in the 50’s has an affinity for everything Chicago. This affinity led my choir to sing countless Chicago songs, like “25 or 6 to 4”, “Saturday in the Park”, and “Will You Still Love Me?”. Each of these songs now brings me back to a memorable point in my life, which is relived every time I listen to those compositions.
For instance, after the tragic Hurricane Katrina, one of the deadliest hurricanes in the history of the United States, an abundance of songs were released in support of the natural disaster that destroyed so many lives. Singers produced music that the American people felt compassion towards whether they were directly related or not. They still felt connected to the music because the whole country was affected by it, even those thousands of miles away, who watched for the the catastrophe take place for days straight via their televisions. Concerts for hurricane relief were also held to raise money for the destruction caused. One of the popular Hurricane Katrina was called “All These People” by singer and songwriter Harry Connick, Jr. All of the proceeds were donated to those affected in New Orleans.
As I got older my brother introduced me to indie bands I grew to love. For example, Foster the People he told me to listen to their whole album instead of once song and that was the first full album I listened to and loved. Then, 2 years later, my still favorite band foster the people came to play at a one-day festival near my house. After weeks of convincing my mom if I could go, she finally said she yes!! That was my first concert and I went with my brother and best friend Bri.
