THE STATE BAND CONTEST CLIMAZED ANOTHER YEAR OF SUCCESS FOR AHS'S PRIDE. Good attention to detail. A well rehearsed group that is accurate and musical. Exciting!” Another noted, “Beautiful performance of loud and soft passages. This is a fine band! An excellent display of technical facility. Good trumpet and bom soioists-Ivery well done! Good clarinet solo. A very outstanding performance.” The sight reading judge said of the local youngsters: “Very mature tone quality in this band. A number of very capable readers. A very fine looking band that is serious about the job they are doing.” And the compliments didn’t end there. “Colorful entry-good flag work,” wrote one of the marching technique. Music well adapted to routine. Show performed with precision and good taste." Another commented, “Superb show conception, design, and execution! Many, many beautiful individual and ensemble sounds. Lovely flags and rifles. Not a single major error-and difficult routines. Great rifles!” And another, “Flag design and execution beautiful. Beautiful uniforms and combinations. Outstanding percussion section. Congratulations on your outstanding performance.. .and thanks!” Student Conductor Don Gosa’s performance drew the following comments: “Director has a real good feel for this music. A good job interpreting the changing mood and character of the music. The patterns are very clear. A good job with the changing meter. Fine, confident appearance!” Judges for the drum major competition said of AHS Drum Major Brent Rainey, “Posture, carriage and military bearing are excellent! Good mace work-good control-good stops and angles. Fine job on seven-eighths time-good horns up. Nice job on flugelhorn solo-never hurts for the drum major to be a fine player! You are an excellent leader-enjoyed you and your band!” We’re No 1! Mr. Taylor said all the bands in the middle school and high school will be in spring concert May 17 and 18 at the high school auditorium. There will be nine performing bands in the program, of which Mr. Taylor said he is extremely proud. Amory currently has three middle school bands, a ninth grade band, two stage bands, two varsity concert bands, and the varsity marching band. The organizations involve an estimated 30 percent of the students in the student body. Band Director Bob Taylor said Mississippi is the only state that has a state band festival in which bands play concert, sight read, and march the same day. “This is the main reason that Mississippi has such a strong and active band organization statewide,” he explained. “We are very proud to be among the top bands in this organization and our students represented the town and school very well.” The Amory Band attended the festival April 4 and returned the evening of April 5 with a large convoy of parents and supporters welcoming them back into town. “We want to give a special thanks to all of the people of the community who have been so faithful in supporting us this year,” Mr. Taylor said. “It is always important to us to have the backing Of our parents and friends, but it has meant so much more to us this year because of the loss of two of our members--Liz Sisson and David Childers. Our support and thanks have been and always will be with the families of these two for what they have meant to us. Liz and David always showed the kind of character and pride that have made the band what it is today. We are thankful for them and for having had them as members of our organization. But we are thankful, too, that we learned in losing them what it’s like to pull together, to support each other, and to depend on God for help. For knowing these two and for what we learned in losing them, none of us will ever be the same.”See Page 15 For More Band.We Salute Our Cheerleaders . . . Thank goodness nobody fell?
