Fine Arts Director Charles McCauley has announced the 2015 marching band show for the Sulphur Springs High School band. The announcement was made to the High School band on Monday. The fall show will be called “Astro”. The opening song is “The Jetsons” but has parts of Gustav Holt’s “The Planets” work in it as well. Thus, it is called “The Jetson’s Travel the Planets”. The second song is from “Apollo 13” and the last song will be music from the Star Trek movie that came out a couple of years ago. McCauley calls the show the best arraignment he has worked with yet.
McCauley also praised the success of the 2014-2015 school year band and orchestra programs at Sulphur Springs High School and Middle School. Both varsity and junior varsity high school bands earned Sweepstakes in competition this spring. At the Middle School the Symphonic Band made straight ones. The Middle School Honors Band made straight ones in sight reading and were one judge away in concert. The Middle School Concert Band made second division. High School Choir, One-Act Play, and Strings also placed well in competitions this year.
With the Blue Blazes Spring Show next week, McCauley said both students and instructors do an outstanding job each year and this year is no exception.
