On Tuesday, October 11th, the AACS Marching Band spent the day delighting and entertaining our Lower and Middle School students. They visited both Lower School campuses and the Middle School. The beautiful weather added to the enjoyment of the day! The goal was to share what Marching Band is about, to have some fun, and to garner interest in joining the band once the students are old enough.
With Ethan Hall directing, the Marching Band played their competition show, The Hand of Friendship, and an arrangement of music from Frozen. Thanks to Christiana Cole and Carleigh Bothmer, two of our dedicated band members, along with some creative costuming, there was even a surprise visit from Anna and Elsa!
After the performance at each of the three campuses, the band members invited the younger students to come down and ask questions, bang on the drums, check out the instruments, and twirl the flags.
"The kids were so fun to play for" said Ethan Hall. "They were a very attentive audience and an absolute delight once they came out to talk with the band members. The band students are already asking when we can tour the campuses again."
The AACS Marching Band has been a huge part of our school community for over 20 years. As one of the most awarded high school bands in the state of Maryland, they play music written specially for AACS and create shows designed to share the Gospel message with audiences.
