The 'ol P & C....
Lets see... 2 years JHS, 4 years HS, 5 years, college,
+ every school I've been at since.

My high school director couldn't take it anymore and programed
Procession of the Nobles my junior year and he caught heck for it.
So...next year they got to hear him play the melody of P & C in the screech range the last two weeks of school.

Pomp and Circumstance ever time... fun being the tuba player for that. SO MANY QUARTER NOTES. Also, the alma mater. It's tradition for the band to play that as the confetti's going off and all that.

Probably my favorite was when we rather appropriately performed School's Out after the alma mater (it was our field show opener that year).
Sean Yeutter

I've marched a bit. 4 years at Ocean View High School, three on tuba, a season with Impulse Drum and Bugle Corps.
