J.F. Kennedy High School Band Disney Competition

Organized by: Sue Hoye

Dear Friends and Family, As many of you know, this is my senior year at John F. Kennedy High School. The one thing I've done all four years of high school is play in the band. We aren't the biggest band, but we are growing and we are definitely dedicated. My freshman year was the first year in more than a decade that the band marched during football games and we've done it each year since. I've loved my band experience, I like what music adds to my education and the friends I have made. Besides playing at the football games, pep rallies, concerts, community holiday events, and recruiting trips to middle schools, we also go to a festival competition each year. We've continually received very high marks at these events. This year, we are trying to go to a very special festival competition at Disney World. There are many other schools in our area that go, or have gone to this event, but it hasn't been something Kennedy has been able to do before because of financial constraints. Since this summer, band members have been working hard to raise money for this trip. We've done car washes, sold cowbells at football games, sold candles, and are about to start selling fruit. But the reality is all this likely won't be enough for all of us to go and that is why I've created this page. I'm hoping some of you might want to help support this effort. Just so you know, going to this competition will put us in front of some very impressive college music educators and instrumental education specialists. Getting to play at Disney, and getting to perform for and be rated by specialists at this level would be a an amazing experience for us as musicians. Any support you could give is appreciated, but there is no pressure. I appreciate that you took the time to read this letter and consider it. Thank you, Caelin
