For the past two weeks members of the Red River High School Bulldog band have been meeting every day for their annual camp. Here is the story from Band Director Yasmine Jason.
The band completed a successful Band camp on July 20, 2018. The band had camp for two weeks, every day, from 8am-5pm. The band was pushed to learn the songs that they will play this year for football season and what they will perform in competitions.
Band members this year had to be more flexible in rehearsal space due to the construction being done at Red River. The normal band hall was unavailable due to electricity being turned off for construction safety. Band members had to be versatile and rehearse in numerous different areas on campus, including high school classrooms.
“I’m extremely thankful for the administration here at the high school for being so flexible and helpful in making sure Band Camp was a success for the students,” says Band Director Yasmine Jason, “Canceling the camp was simply not an option and the kids did a truly amazing job.”
You can see the Red River High School Bulldog Band at every football game and at parades throughout the community.
