Band Rant

After recent events I have come to post this.

During our last marching band competition, I was telling some freshman to quiet down because other bands were practicing. One had the nerve to ask “Why should we? It’s just marching band.”

It’s not just marching band. It’s a form of art were every piece is needed and connects with others to create something beautiful. Marching band has become my family and it takes up a lot of my life. If you think it’s “just marching band,” you have not experienced the thrills and energy performing for everyone gives you. I can see why not everyone likes it, but you should at least respect everyone who put through hours of work for band.
