-The marching band has been working hard  since the end of the 2017 school year and the outcome at The Big E on September 27th proves it.

This was the first real show for the 2017-2018 David Prouty marching band since the start of the summer. The band director Francis Fazio, assisted by Melissa Jette, and Brian Voeltz have been working hard to get these young adults where they are.

The band performed three movements from the show “Boundaries”. The shows songs are “Obstacles”, “The Other Side” and “Breaking Barriers”.

Desireé Melvin Band senior and alto-sax player said, “I feel like we are really starting to grow. At first things started slow, but as the season goes on we are really getting into the swing of things. The Big E was a great success this year and hopefully we continue to get better. It’s just a shame I lost my wallet.”

Brianna Mensah Band junior and flute player said, “We’ve had a lot of improvement since we began. I feel like we are becoming a cohesive unit. I’ve always loved band, it’s like a second home for me.”

Michaela Duquette Band senior, Drum major, and clarinet player said, “We played the best we could. The Big E is always a good time, so it was sad for me on the way home because it was my last one.”

With many more shows to go, it’s only going to get better as the season goes on.
