David Serrano, Dennis Basketball, Pep Band Makes Music to Cheer by As concert season approached, the band moved its activities inside and prepared for the presentation of its traditional winter and spring concerts. With the increasing number of band members, a practical change took place in the Rocky band this year. The large band became two separate groups known as the Red band and the Gold band, each rehearsing at eight o’clock on alternate days of the week. Aside from the regular activities for the band during concert season, many members participated in other musical activities. The woodwind and brass sections were grouped into ensembles to perform in front of many different audiences in the area. The dance band entertained at ex¬ change assemblies and Rocky assemblies. The pep band, a familiar sound at home basketball games, provided vigorous music to promote pep and school spirit. This enthu¬ siastic group of band members played an important part in boosting the Rocks on to victory. Despite the hopes of many anxious se¬ niors, the new band room, a vital part of the expansion program, was not completed in time for effective use. Regardless of crowded conditions, the band did its best this year. The instrumental music depart¬ ment is an essential part of the framework of Rocky.
