Owen Valley Goes On Tour


OV Band Tours Elementaries
The Owen Valley High School Concert Band toured the elementary schools in a recruiting tour prior to Thanksgiving Break. They went to each of Owen Valley Middle Schools for feeders: Patricksburg, Gosport, McChormick's Creek, and Spencer Elementary giving a 20 minute presentation. During their performance the students introduced the instruments of the band and allowed the elementary school students to hear each instrument group. The performance was intereactive and well receive. "I really believe that it is vital for the band to focus its' energy and effort on recruiting at the elementary school level." stated band director Dominic Thompson "Those students are the future of this program and we are eager to get them involved as early as possible." The band would like to thank the Prinicpals of each of the elementaries for allowing our performance and for Mark Deckard, Gary Lyons, and Sandy Wood who helped make the trip possible.
