Spreading the word about the growing presence of progressive Alaskans and their powerful ideas on the web
Has anyone ever considered forming a Palmer Marching Band? That would be SO awesome, even if they only performed once or twice a year!
Nobody wants to do that. A lot of Alaska high school and middle school band directors who located here from outside did it s they could escape having to do marching band.A few high schools have tried it here, most notable Colony HS in Palmer. I don't think the marching band there or at any other AK HS I've seen was ever large enough to really do what they are supposed to - make images on the football field at halftime that make the audience go "Awesome!"
My sentiments exactly, Phil.Gleo HuyckDirector, Mat-Su Concert Band
Even Sousa's band of 40 years only marched 8 times and Sousa did that reluctantly.
Gleo,He had had his fill of marching as a Marine, eh?Thanks for letting me join you yesterday. So good to sit with old friends.
