Crestwood’s blazing hot Marching Band and Color Guard are hosting ‘
Marching on the Mountain – Cavalcade of Bands’ on Saturday, October
26th, starting at 1 pm.
Band Parent Association President Leigh Michel says that the members of
the Color Guard and Marching Band are proudly representing the
Crestwood community in five competitions including the one they are hosting on Saturday. “We have seven bands performing and competing
on Saturday. And there will be great music all afternoon.”
Color Guard moms, Denice Mulvey and Dawn Wells are on the
organizing committee and they assure that the Cavalcade will have great
entertainment and plenty of good food and fun. “We are selling programs
and having concessions, basket raffles and other events throughout
the day,” Denice explains. “
The gates open at 1 pm and the show starts at 2 pm. The admission is
$5 for adults and $3 for seniors and students.”
Denice adds proudly that the 56 students in the program, including her
daughter Joanna, work long hours to perfect their performance, but it’s all worth it when the music starts.
Dawn Wells, whose daughter Jenni is Color Guard Co-Captain with Jessica Olszyk, agrees, “There is
a lot for the kids to learn and the program is progressively adding new elements:
it is continuing to evolve. This year’s show is very theatrical.”
In addition to Jenni, Dawn’s French exchange student, Violette Hiegel, is in
the band. Dawn explains proudly the
Violette arrived early for her visit expressly so she could participate in the band camp in the color guard.
