Congratulations Mr. Sykes and the GMS Band!
Congratulations to the GMS Band for their performance in the District III VBODA band assessment this past weekend, February 28 & March 1, 2014. They received a superior from all three judges on their stage performance and on their sight-reading performance. This is a great achievement as superior is the highest score given and the band students were only given seven minutes to study a piece of music they had never seen in the sight-reading performance.
The GMS & GHS Band students hosted this district event of 771 band students and 400 parents. Mr. Sykes sends his appreciation to the following people who helped to make this a successful event:
Mr. Givens for transferring the judges’ comments to cds;
Mr. Snead for helping out with logistics; and
Mr. and Mrs. Butler for delivering the pizzas.
Mr. Sykes is very proud of the hard work and dedication of the wonderful band students!
Way to go Mr. Sykes and the GMS Band for this outstanding event!
