Some Notes...

Woo Tribute

As Homecoming season is approaching, I've been reminiscing about last year at this time. My last Homecoming before retiring from the Wooster City Schools was a special one. The fourth ever Alumni Band & Reunion was a huge part of the weekend. Seeing so many proud, musical alumni come back for the halftime performance was fantastic.

One of the highlights for me was the performance of an arrangement I put together for the occasion. It was a combination of original tunes and WHS staples, and it opened the show. Below is a clip of the performance (thanks, Andi Williams!).

This was one of the more impressive marching band moments that I can recall over all of my years of teaching… what a sound! Crank it up, and give it a listen.

If you're curious, here are all the melodies referenced in the arrangement. If you're an alumnus, let me know how many of these you were able to identify.
