Band Camp will kick off your marching season this year, where band students learn the show music and marching drill. Mr. Walker has added a drum instructor staff member from DCI (Drum Corps International,) so the drum line will enjoy individual expert guidance. Not to mention, the entire band will benefit from a DCI instructor presence. The lessons of working hard towards a goal, along with the bonds and friendships our students make at band camp last a lifetime.
Color Guard. Mrs. Jones is back as color guard instructor, and she has some surprises in store for us. Our new and improved color guard squad returns with a focus to bring the visual part of the drill to the next level.
Friday Night Lights. Everyone’s favorite experience from band is creating the Friday Night Soundtrack for our beloved Yulee Hornet Football Team. Halftime performances add to the fun. The Best Band In The Land is getting ready to lead the crowd as we cheer, dance, sing, and play. Nobody shows more spirit than our crew. It’s also rumored fresh squeezed lemonade / limeades / orange crushes will return for our home games.
Marching Competitions and MPAs. Of course, Mr. Walker has competitions on our season schedule, including another trip to Lowndes – you don’t want to miss that show! Music is already chosen and students have started learning the pieces – look for our Yulee Hornet Marching Band to continue our Tradition of Excellence.
Band Trip. Mr. Walker is planning an (overnight) trip for the band students. This trip will give students the opportunity to visit a place they’ve never been before, and perform / meet / spectate with students from a different area. Trip details will be provided soon.
New Band Uniform. Our brand new field uniforms look sharp, and this year will be the first class to sport the look of the next era for our Hornet band.
Other Performances. Of course everyone loves our band, and Mr. Walker gets plenty of requests for community performances. These are wonderful performing opportunities that typically support a worthy cause.
Holiday and Spring Concerts. If you have heard any of these concerts, you know how special a program we have here at YHS. Of course the Holiday and Spring concerts will return next year!
Fundraisers. Of course, we will have plenty of fundraising opportunities to help students pay for activities and their Fair Share. Shrimp Fest, the Christmas Parade, Boston Butt Sales, and some new ideas will be in play.
Band Banquet. Our band parents planned a special night to top off the year, and it was a great success. We expect to bring the band banquet back again this year for awards, laughs, food, fun, and to celebrate another amazing year for our students.
