Serve Daily - - NEWS - By Re­becca Mccon­nell

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.
