WARSAW — Warsaw Community Schools’ band program will perform its award-winning show “Beyond the Forest’s Edge” at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15, at Fisher Field.
WCS invites the public to enjoy the hard work and hours of practice these amazing students have invested in this year’s performance.
There is no admission charge for the performance; however, freewill donations will be accepted for the Band Boosters.
“Beyond the Forest’s Edge” is a variation on Little Red Riding Hood and the perils she faces trying to get home. Spectators quickly begin to realize how Red gets confused as the trees begin to sway with the music. The show begins as the band lurks away from one another while listening to the call of the flute.
Out into the open, Red flees only to get encased in the bewildering call of senior Matheson Hertel’s trombone. The loud glissando from the entire low brass as they switched from baritones to trombones in a heartbeat caught the crowd by surprise. The drill routine enhances the musical score played by the students as they march across the field with trees in tow. Attention is pulled in by the quick tempos and sharp movements only to look again and the forest is alive, moving with the melody.
WCS’s band performed outstandingly this weekend and will continue to strive for higher marks next week when they travel to the state competition on Oct. 23 at Franklin Central High School in Indianapolis.
