Spanish Fork High School hosts Region 8 Marching Band Field Show Review
It was a beautiful fall morning for the 2014 Region 8 Field Show Review hosted by Spanish Fork High School’s Marching Band. Sunshine welcomed the bands as they arrived for their performances. “We are so excited to be hosting this year!” said Clint Roberts, SFHS’s band director, “Our band has been working very hard and we are happy to kick off the field marching season!”
The SFHS Band Boosters worked very hard to make sure everything ran smoothly, from parking, setting up practice areas, hosting the judges and taking care of the bands. Dana Robinson did an amazing job as announcer this year and had a lot of fun being part of the high school’s hosting team. The review is not a competition, but rather a chance for the bands to perform their show and get feedback from the judges where they can improve before the actual competitions start. Local Marching bands attending the review this year were Maple Mountain High School, Salem Hills High School, Springville High School, Timpanogos High School and Spanish Fork High School.
The Hosting school performed their Tower of Power Show with Drum Majors Bobby McConnell and Tanner Stone and Colorguard Captain Jada Kent. The Spanish Fork High School Marching Band is under the direction of Clint Roberts - Band Director, Sarah Nasson – Colorguard Director, and Brad Sampson – Percussion Director. SFHS Band has been practicing for these performances since the beginning of the summer with band camp and sectionals and daily practices and is looking forward to a great year and some awesome performances around the state.
