Band gearing up for annual performance

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Northview High School junior Ashley Nichols practices the trombone with the remaining members of the Northview Marching Knights' low brass section in preparation for the band's upcoming Rotary Club of Brazil 4th of July Celebration performance.
In preparation for the annual Rotary Club of Brazil's 4th of July Celebration, members of the Northview Marching Knights (NMK) have been practicing throughout the month of June.

The Marching Knights will perform during the festival Thursday, June 28, at 7 p.m., in the Forest Park Band Shell.

Through June, band members have met at the high school three days a week for practices.

Those camp sessions will end Thursday, June 21.

"We're learning basic skills and preparing for the Rotary show," NMK Band Director Bob Medworth said.

Medworth added the band will salute veterans during the Rotary performance by playing several patriotic selections, including "Armed Forces Medley," "America," by Neil Diamond, "Yankee Doodle Dandy," "You're A Grand 'Ole Flag," "76 Trombones" and "Circus Days March."

The North Clay Middle School band will also join the performance.

In addition, the Northview and North Clay guards will also conduct a performance.

The performance will coincide with the annual Fish Fry at the Forest Park Pavilion. All proceeds from the dinner will benefit both Northview and Clay City high school bands.

Advance Fish Fry tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for children, and are available from high school band members.

Prices will be 50 cents more at the door the evening of the dinner.

During the week of the Rotary Club performance, the Northview Marching Knights will also conduct Band Camp at the high school, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., each day, in preparation for the upcoming marching band season.
