MY DAY: first sounds of Spring…

This past week, I’ve heard the first sounds of Spring, here in the Miami Valley.

Not birds singing….  Not the sound of rustling new leaves…

The sound of PERCUSSION!

I love it when it’s winter percussion or marching band season because the ensembles/sections, next door at Fairmont High School, practice outside.  The percussion ensemble, and winter guard members do not get full spring breaks as most their friends do.  By Wednesday of Spring break, these troopers have returned for 9-12 hour practices, preparing for the final leg of regional and national grand finals.

If you have never been to one of these contests, check out MEPA or WGI schedules.  They are a blast, and one of the most exciting, and beautiful athletic art forms you’ll ever see.
