The Newsome High School Marching Band is once again in great form for its
2012 marching season.
Now 143 members strong, this Florida Marching Band Coalition finalist breaks out this year’s show, titled “The Undiscovered America.” After completing one full week of band camp and several mini-camps throughout the summer, this group of students is more prepared than ever before.
“To say that I'm proud of these students is an understatement," said Newsome band director Christian Finch. "In all my years of teaching, I've never had a band so invested and committed. This year's show is more
challenging than anything we've every tried before. They've embraced the challenge and are improving themselves every single day."
With several upcoming statewide marching competitions and the county Music Performance Assessments, Newsome will showcase its musical and visual talent.
The Newsome Wolfpack Marching Band also will host its own Marching Festival on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 1 to 9 p.m. Several competition-level high school marching bands will participate from all over the state of Florida.
Tickets are available at the door for $12 for adults, $6 for children 6 to 12 years of age, and 5 years of age and under are free. There is no cost for parking. Merchandise sales and a full concession stand will be available.
