After graduating, seniors and group students at a Texas high school found their mature concert was canceled on account of this coronavirus pandemic. They were heartbroken.
For three days directly start Friday, the trio traveled 168 kilometers away from home to home to go to their 85 senior group students. For 15 minutes every day, they played with the school’s fight song while their pupils watched in pleasure in their doorsteps.
“We knew something required to be performed for our seniors who’ve been in the group program because they have been in 6th grade and are currently missing out in their grand finale concert,” group manager Jason Lewis told.
“Considering that the concert could not occur, we chose to bring the concert for them to reveal just how much we love and love them. It was our present to our seniors.”
Lewis, who plays the French horn, along with his two partner group directors, Michael Hernandez on percussion and Mark De Hertogh about the saxophone, didn’t quit playing before giving all the children a single party.
After 22 hours of enjoying music in sun and saltwater, the three-person ring finished their “We’re PlanoWe Are Legend” band manager tour on Sunday night.
Between songs, laughter, and a lot of tears, Plano band seniors eventually obtained the appropriate goodbye they deserved.
For me, the fight song isn’t just a song. It is a tune we perform after every touchdown.
When missing out on his mature concert along with other group activities, like the end-of-year feast was unsatisfactory, Park said his group directors’ attempts had increased his spirits.
“Seeing these children and seeing how they responded has made a major difference for us,” Lewis stated. “I guarantee you whatever happiness our kids sensed by our trip, we believed that tenfold. We’re a large family, and it is amazing to get this feeling of love, and not one of us will ever forget it.”
