Another Great Competition Season
Congratulations to the Patriot Regiment, Emily Keene, Mr. Rowe, and the Staff on another successful marching season! You have taken the program “Out of the Box” and with “Adventures in Time”, found the “Missing Piece” to put it all together. It is amazing to see your growth in three years and we look forward to seeing what the future brings!
Seniors, you have truly left your mark on the band program and we hope you are proud of the legacy you are leaving. You have set examples, started traditions, and influenced your classmates. If you are attending a college with a marching band, we hope you join and continue making friends and memories there. We also hope you can attend a competition or game next year to check in.
Thank you to all the families who donated, chaperoned, built, loaded, pulled, pushed, cheered, drove, washed, organized, or otherwise supported this program. Thank you to Mr. Rowe, Brooks Wilson, Ian Bowie, Alyssa Ciccotella, Angela Roberts, Dominic Ruffin, Scott Thomas and Heather Johnson for the hours of work you put into developing, teaching, and tweaking the show to make it the best possible.
It takes a staggering amount of time and effort to perform a marching show and we all play important roles on stage and behind the scenes. Without everyone working together in this Band Family, success would not be possible. So once again, Congratulations to the 2017 AFHS Patriot Regiment!
Next week begins Marching Band Parade rehearsals on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 2:30 pm until 4:30 pm. This will be the schedule until the Raleigh Christmas Parade. Afterward we will switch to once weekly rehearsals.
