The money raised from both ticket and concession sales will be allocated towards the 2014 AfterProm, which will be held on May 16.

SuperBand Visits Chicago

The West Geauga SuperBand (combined symphonic and concert bands) had a wonderful performance at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. The band had a nice audience and many people stopped to watch and videotape the performance.

The SuperBand also had an excellent performance at the VanderCook College of Music in Chicago. After the performance, the band received feedback and instruction from Stacey Dolan, dean of undergraduate admissions and associate director of bands.

The band visited the John Hancock Observatory, the Navy Pier, the Museum of Science and History, Millennium Park and John G. Shedd Aquarium. The students saw the Blue Man Group, experienced the Medieval Times and explored the Magnificent Mile.

Thanks go to the West Geauga band directors and the West Geauga School District. In just two and one-half days, the WG SuperBand had a very educational and positive experience. It’s just another example of “West G Doing Great Things!”

To help support the West Geauga bands, West Geauga Band Boosters will be hosting a spaghetti dinner fund-raiser on May 9 at the Mayfield Church in Chester Township. All proceeds will be used to help fund the instrumental music programs in the West Geauga school district.
