Winter Band Performance
Foothill Middle School Instrumental Music Program
The Foothill Middle School Bands have had an exciting and performance filled 1st semester this year. The Wind Ensemble and the Symphonic Band combined for a concert on October 10th for the Azusa Golden Days Carnival at Memorial Park, kicking off the whole celebratory weekend. Together, they also performed for the annual Veteran’s Day ceremony, honoring our many service men and women in the community. Mayor Rocha himself has invited the Foothill Bands to play at this event for the last four years. While juggling the repertoire for these concerts, the Foothill Band students have also had much interaction with the Azusa High School Aztec Marching Band, performing pep tunes with them at the AHS vs. GHS football game. Select students also attended the West Covina HS Band Field Show Tournament with the Aztec Band to obtain first-hand experience in the band competitive circuit, further prepping them for high school.
Most recently, the Foothill Bands presented their Holiday Concert on December 11th. At 3:30pm, the Beginning Band demonstrated their newly developed skills with performances of tunes such as Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, William Tell Overture, Jingle Bells, and Old MacDonald Had A Band. The evening featured the Symphonic Band with holiday favorites such as, Let it Snow, the Wind Ensemble with Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and Jingle-Bell Rock, and the Jazz Band performed Baby, It’s Cold Outside, and a hard-hitting swing shuffle titled, Dashing Through The Snow.
The Foothill Instrumental Music Program definitely deserves their two week holiday vacation, but they are truly looking forward to a thrilling festival season this upcoming spring!
