McCormick's Creek Dinner Showcases Jazz Ensemble

Monday, May 14th was the Owen Valley Band's first dinner fundraiser at the Canyon Inn and the first performance of the year. During the evening, Band and Guard students waited on tables and served drinks and rolls for diners. The Jazz band also serenaded the crowd with a short set of jazz classics. We thank the Canyon Inn and McCormick's Creek State Park for their hospitality and look forward to another event like this in the near future.

Percussion Wows at Wedding

The winter percussion ensemble performed at a wedding this past weekend in Ellettsville. The mother of the bride made the request because the bride is an Owen Valley grad and the groom is in the military. In addition to performing on Battery equipment the percussionists also performed on concert percussion. It was a beautiful day and the students' performance was well received.
