Select Band 2010

Elementary Band Embarks On Their First Tour!

Ladies and gentlemen now presenting the first ever LDNE Select Band!  (And the crowd goes wild!)  Recently the 2010 Select Band embarked on a tour that resulted in a stop in three towns.    

First, what is the Select Band?  Select Band is a small group of fifth and sixth grade band students who have earned their way into the group.  Any elementary band student who earned 20 stickers was asked to be in the Select Band.  

Stickers could be earned several ways including coming to class prepared, practicing, and checking off music.  The tour began by playing for the LDNE elementary students in an assembly. Afterwards they ate pizza in Oakland then made their way to the Decatur Senior Center.  The final stop on the tour was the Logan Valley Manor in Lyons.   

A heartfelt thank you goes out to Kelly French for driving our bus and helping out, the LDNE administration for allowing this to happen, A and D Hotstuff in Oakland, Decatur Senior Center, and the Logan Valley Manor for allowing us to be part of their day.
