On Saturday, Nov. 7th, students and parents of the AACS Golden Eagles Marching Band traveled to MetLife Stadium in New Jersey to watch the 2015 USBands National Championships. After spending the day watching bands perform, the students spent Sunday in New York City visiting the 9/11 Memorial and attending the off-Broadway show STOMP.
"I was so pleased with how well the trip went," said band director Mr. Hall. "We had a very fun and busy weekend that was educational, but also served as a great time to build comradery among the students. I especially enjoyed our time of worship together in the hotel Saturday night because it was just us coming together as a family. The 9/11 Memorial was deeply impactful, STOMP was a blast... I definitely plan for us to do another trip like this next year!"
Mr. Hall went on to acknowledge how instrumental the band parents were in organizing this trip. "They've been amazing!"
The Marching Band finished its competitive season on Oct. 31st after placing first in every competition they attended. The first informational meeting about the 2016 season will be in April.
