WH Band Open House

By Alyssa Robbins

It’s almost that time of year again! The 2016 marching band season is coming up in the fall and and it is now it recruitment season. The band recruitment officer, Emily Fitzgerald, is working her hardest to make the 2016 marching band season and 2016-2017 band the better than last year.

Fitzgerald is working together with the new marching band director, Matthew Paterno. Paterno stepped down from the position five years ago to be with with his kids more, but is back and ready to win.

Every year the band has an open house, which is hosted by the recruitment officer and the band director. Fitzgerald is preparing for the open house and is making it be the best open house yet. She says, “On May 9th we’re having our annual open house for anyone interested. At the open house, I hope to inspire others to join band. It should be a fun time.”

In the past, band open house has been a huge success and one of the main reason why the band gets so many members. Good luck Emily and good lucky 2016-2017 band!
