Miami High School Wardog Band has begun their 2017-18 season. The tradition of excellence is alive and well and being demonstrated with every marching step and note played, and it’s only their first week. Wardog Band is now in their second week of camp and will be meeting for 8:00am-4:00pm and then an evening sessions from 6:00-8:00, Monday thru Wednesday. The evening sessions are team building activities. Tuesday is “Bath Night”… the woodwinds and color guard will be washing the band truck and trailer, while the brass and percussion students will be washing and polishing their instruments. Wednesday evening will be full group project… “Painting of the Trees.” The trees are a focal prop in our show and each section in charge of the presentation of their tree. Thursday will be a full day of 8:00-4:00 and a late night induction ceremony. On Friday, August 11th, we will be having our 2017-18 Kick-Off Concert. It is free and open to the public. The performance will be held in the MAC at Miami High School and will begin at 6:30pm. We hope you can attend.
Our show is titled Go Dogs Go!, and is a musical portrait of the P.E. Eastman children’s book… Go Dog. Go! This show will be used for our competition season and will be performed on a national stage in December, in San Antonio, as part of the festivities for 2017 Alamo Bowl. The band will also be performing a mass band performance at halftime of the Alamo Bowl Football game.
Wardog Band is forever grateful for the community support. So, please, come out and help us kick-off another year of excellence in performance.
