Warsaw Community Schools' middle school band students recently concluded their summer band program. Both beginner and advanced students took part in practices, a band cookout, trip and concerts.

According to Band Director Joseph Peloza, students in the beginning band began their endeavors with their instruments through practicing out of their books. Peloza noted students made immense progress during their training.

“As a group of beginners just starting, I was impressed by the tone quality they displayed, enthusiasm, and their focus,” stated Peloza. “I heard many positive comments from parents after our concert. They enjoyed our dramatic opening to the concert as well as the students’ ability to follow my direction quickly. They could not believe that the students had only been playing for a few weeks.”

The advanced band students performed a concert that included a variety of musical styles. Their selections included Star-Spangled Banner, America, the Beautiful, This Is My Country, and music from the musical Cabaret. “They (the students) didan amazing job preparing for this concert. I am fortunate to work with a great group of students,” noted Peloza.

In addition to their practices, 66 middle school band students embarked on Saturday, June 23, to Deep River Waterpark, Merrillville.

“Our practices, band cookout, trip and concerts were enjoyed by everybody,” stated Peloza. “I had a great time working with the students this year and look forward to a great school year starting in August!”
