This is your last band concert of the year, how do you feel? 

“Unlike the final competition with marching band, I’m not thinking about it being our last performance but am mostly just worried about being able to play a quality show. However, I’m definitely going to miss my peers and the staff,” senior Robert Eppler said. 

“Honestly, pretty sad. The hardest thing about band is that after you’re done each year you will never play with the same group of people ever again. Sure you’ll play in another band, but it will never be the same band,” senior Samantha Lees said.

 

This is your first POPs concert, how do you feel? 

“I’m excited. It’s fun, there’s more energy, and better than standing there with our hands by our side,” freshman Max Tayrien said.

“Excited, it’s definitely fun when you do a lot of dancing. I’m a little bit nervous because I am not doing great on the spinning and all that,” sophomore Aaron Yenser said. 

 

This is your last POPs concert, how do you feel? 

“I’m excited but the dance for “Sing” is making me nervous, because the song is too fast and there’s too many moves. I’m still excited because it’s my last POPS concert and it’s fun. I’m a little sad so we’re not going to focus on that until the concert,” senior Ashton Sowden said. 

“I’m sad, it’s bittersweet, but I’m super glad that ive been able to be like heavily involved in doing choreography and teaching and stuff. I’m not nervous, we’ll get it down,” senior Parker Tauer said. 

“I feel like I’m ready for game day. It’s kind of sad but I’m glad that I’m able to do it and I have a solo. We have a small group of Landon Francis, Blayne Albright, and me playing Folsom Prison Blues. I’m a little nervous; I don’t get nervous easily, but I won’t crack under pressure,” senior Ellis May said.
