Even though the band had to cancel a festival performance in Corpus Christi due to the swine flu scare, the Panther Band set aside their disappointment and continued their hard work preparing for their last two performances for the year, Spring Concert and Graduation.
The Spring Concert is scheduled for May 26th at the Blanco Elementary School Auditorium following the Spaghetti Dinner that will be served from 5:00pm to 7:00pm in the cafeteria. The 5th grade Panther Band will perform first, followed by the BMS Panther Band and then the BHS Panther Band will bring an end to the evening. Along with preparing for the end of the year events, Panther Band Director David Shirk and Assistant Director Brandon Aly are really excited and are looking forward to next year.
The 2009 marching season is a state year so they are already searching for music for the band to perform during halftime and at competition. The Band has already held try-outs for drum major and color guard. The Panther Band will be under the field direction of Drum Major (soon-to-be Senior) Keith Baize and Assistant Drum Major (soon-to-be Junior) Jesse Troublefield. Color Guard members are: Captain Andrea Torre, members Elaina Woods, Simbry Montooth and Audreanna Johnson.
The Blanco Panther Band Boosters cordially invite you to attend the 2009 Spring Concert Fundraiser dinner on Tuesday, May 26, 2009. A fine spaghetti dinner, complete with salad, bread and dessert, will be served in the elementary school cafeteria from 5:00 to 7:00pm. The concert will commence in the CLC Auditorium at 7:00pm.
Tickets are $7.00 for adults and $5.00 for children. Tickets are available from any band student or at the door. Please come out and enjoy this community dinner and stay to see the progress of our band students over the course of the year. Many thanks to Dr. Ford and the Blanco ISD for supporting the Band Boosters in this program!
