Impact of SPASH Band felt by many


The Mirror reporter

The SPASH Band has been an important piece in the lives of many high schoolers for years, and many involved with the acclaimed club believe that its influence does not end simply when the bell rings.

At the beginning of the year, students are assigned to either first or fourth hour, depending on skill level, however, this can change throughout the year, depending on how teacher Brad Schmidt sees development.

First hour and fourth hour often commingle in a friendly and constructive manner.

“It makes everyone better,” Zach Wright, a member of fourth hour band said. “It’s great to be able to come into a place where I can receive help and not worry about being bullied like in other places of the school.”

The students all seem to be relatively happy in their respective band hours.

Currently, the students are preparing for their May 12 spring concert.

They will be playing a medley of songs, including Video Games Live, Godzilla Eats Las Vegas, Under an Irish Sun, City of Trees and Civilization.

“We have a real treat coming up this spring,” first hour band member Kacey Koch said. “We have a lot of time to prepare, so the hope is that this concert will be our best one of the year.”

Admission is $3, and the concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.
