Band in­for­ma­tion sought as part of 50th an­niver­sary

Record Observer - - Opinion -

This com­ing school year Queen Anne’s County High School will be cel­e­brat­ing its 50th an­niver­sary at its cur­rent lo­ca­tion. I hope to be writ­ing a se­ries of ar­ti­cles for the lo­cal news­pa­pers, the Record Ob­server and the Bay Times, on this an­niver­sary with the help of the Queen Anne’s County com­mu­nity.

My first ar­ti­cle(s) will be on the high school’s March­ing and Con­cert Band (1966–2016). I am start­ing with the band, since I was a proud Band Par­ent for seven years (1993-2000). I have been in con­tact with the cur­rent Band Boost­ers and the Band Di­rec­tor Eric Wright, and they sup­port this en­deavor.

I am reach­ing out to any­one in the com­mu­nity who has thoughts, com­ments, re­mem­brances, sto­ries, etc., re­gard­ing the band for in­clu­sion in the ar­ti­cle(s). I hope to do some re­search ei­ther through school doc­u­ments, such as high school year­books and/ or on­line through the dig­i­tal record of lo­cal news­pa­pers, which the Queen Anne’s County Free Li­brary has just re­cently fin­ished.

So I am ask­ing all past and cur­rent band mem­bers, band par­ents and the com­mu­nity to please help me ac­com­plish this project.

If you have in­put, writ­ten or pho­to­graphic, please send to my email ad­dress: qachs­band50an­niv@gmail.com.
