This Salem Marching Blue Is Ready to Erupt Towards Success
August 11, 2018 -- The Salem Marching Blue just finished up their band camp and gave a preview performance to the community on August 2, 2018 in the High School Gym. This year’s band includes 66 members and only 10 of them being seniors. Every year the band keeps getting younger, but they have also been getting better. This year’s group is disciplined and hungry for more success to build upon from last year.
This year’s marching show is titled, Volcano. The first movement will portray a Luau party that includes hula dancing, fire twirling and the popular tune “You’re Welcome” from the Disney movie Moana. The next two movements are when the volcano wakes up and erupts onto the field and leads to a dramatic ending. It has been a very interesting year around the world with all the tragic volcano eruptions. These modern events will bring forward some authentic teaching moments as we explore the Polynesian culture that inspired this year’s show.
Make sure to stay tuned throughout our whole season to see how it all develops. Also you can catch our performances at our Marching Festivals throughout the year or our Community Performance on Thursday, October 18 at the Tiger Stadium.
We will be doing our community service project again this year so if you need any assistance please contact the Salem R-80 Band Director.
