Band Members Attend Music Symposium

Band Members Attend Music Symposium

This past June and July three of our Centerburg band members attended the Bands of America “Music for All” Music Symposium sponsored by Yamaha Corporation.

The symposium was held at Ball State University in Muncy, Indiana and included over 750 band students from 30 different states. While some students participated in the week-long marching band camp, others decided on the drum academy or the drum major academy. There was also a week-long band director workshop offered simultaneously so directors were actually able to observe some of the teachings the kids were receiving. Pictured from left to right are Chuck Dettmar “very” senior band director, Judith Dettmar, senior drum major and Kyle Schmidt, junior drumline captain.
