It’s that time again.
It’s going to be an interesting year, I think. You know the new high school band director we got last season, right before band camp started? And there was all this worry that we wouldn’t transition well from Mr. Butler, who’d been with the program for several years before leaving to take a position with a large high school near his wife’s job in North Carolina? And then Mr. Wilner came and we had another successful band year, with PCHS being named a Virginia Honor Band for the 13th time?
Well, Mr. Wilner found a new job. Yeah, right before band camp.
We met our new band director today. I think we’re going to like Mr. Shrewsbury. He grew up in the county and has been director of the marching and pep bands at a university in South Carolina, as well as assistant director of their concert bands, but I understand he was interested in returning home.
I’m very proud of the kids for taking the initiative to behave well, to claim the band as their own regardless of director. Look for more updates soon.
As well as Scent Diary.
And a review of Byredo Flowerhead, as well.
