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!
