Brusly High School conducted its band camp Monday, July 29 - Friday, August 3.
The band practiced every day of the week from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
“We covered marching fundamentals, cheers and chants, and school spirit tunes,” said Brusly’s band director, Anthony Hollins, adding that the Brusly High students learned more than just musical skills. “Camp brought about a lot of team building and camaraderie.”
The band welcomed three new members this year bringing their total to 18 members.
“We might be small, but we sound good. We’re building for the future starting with the foundation,” Hollins stated.
Hollins said he hopes to develop the members and build them into strong musicians and soloists.
The band will resume practice the first day of school. The band will be preparing for a few competitions that they will participate in during marching season, but they’re really focusing their attention and efforts on concert band.
According to Hollins, this year will be the Mighty Panther Band’s first time to participate in the District Festival in several years.
