NCHS music has been very busy in the early part of the school year.
On September 10, the Marching Hornets competed in the Metro East Marching Classic in O’Fallon.
This competition has some of the best marching bands in the greater St. Louis area. 25 bands competed in four different class sizes.
The Marching Hornets won third place overall in their class.
“We have been competing in this competition for the last four years,” said NCHS Music Director Steve Browne. “This is the best finish we have ever had.”
On September 11, the NCHS Choir participated in a touching 9/11 memorial at St. Paul U.C.C. church in Nashville.
The choir sang God Bless America in front of a large crowd of Nashville first responders and others there to remember the people who lost their lives in the attacks on September 11, 2001.
On September 18, the Marching Hornets were again in action at the Wheat Festival Parade.
“In my opinion, this is the best parade around,” Browne said. “It is always well run and I love to hear the very appreciative crowd as we march through the parade.”
This Friday, the Marching Hornets welcome Jr. High school band members to be a Marching Hornets for a Day. These students will accompany the Marching Hornets on the field for the Pre-Game performance. There will be and additional 26 kids in the marching band that night.
