The JC Booth Symphonic Band was chosen to perform at the 2006 Georgia Music Educators Association Convention

The JC Booth Symphonic Band was chosen to perform at the 2006 Georgia Music Educators Association Convention on January 26th in Savannah Georgia.  The Symphonic Band was chosen from a field of dozens and dozens of bands.  Out of this field two middle school bands were picked. 

 

The Band performed 7 pieces on this concert.  Among the pieces performed was a “Commissioned Piece” composed by Mr. Bill Melton.  The inspiration for “A Northern Odyssey” came from Bill’s mission trip last summer to an Indian reservation in the far reaches of northern Canada .  Mr. Melton is entering this piece into a “National Composition” contest for concert band works.  The band also performed a chart entitled, “All Those Endearing Young Charms” featuring guest soloist Tony Bortone from the Army Ground Forces Band .  Tony is an extraordinary euphonium player  who teaches low brass here locally.  Our percussion section was featured in a percussion ensemble piece (Instant Carmen) and was conducted by John Haack, formerly of the Army Ground Forces Band.   John not only keeps a full studio of percussion students, he also finds time to work with the a local drum line as well.
