MICCA Marching Band Festival


Pictured above is the WHS Warrior Marching Band, under the direction of Mr. Tom Bankert, earning a 4-Star rating at the MICCA Festival on Saturday Night as they performed the music of Dave Matthews.  The new field and facilities provided a beautiful setting for our show!  Congratulations to the Wakefield Music Boosters for hosting a first-class event. 

Highlights of the show were amazing solos by drummer Dylan Sellers and gorgeous vocals by Matt Stanley.  Marie Peduto and Vanessa Chin also delivered a dynamic duet on saxophone - their improvisation would make the Dave Matthews Band proud!  Drum Majors Sarah Crump and Adam Tarpey led the band with precision and style.  If you haven't had a chance to see the band, they host a NESBA regional marching band festival this coming Saturday night at Landrigan Field - a great opportunity to support the WHS music program while enjoying a night of true family entertainment!
