White House Heritage Marching Band Completes Another Successful Season.
The White House Heritage Band of Patriots marching band recently concluded another successful competitive season performing their show “Words”. Under the direction of J.R. Baker and Rebecca Pal the band competed in five competitions this fall at Clarksville Northeast High School, Siegel High School, Station Camp High School, Columbia Central High School and Franklin High School.
The band and percussion sections finished second in their class at three of these events, and the color guard finished third at Columbia Central’s contest. At the Clarksville Northeast contest the percussion section placed first in their class and fourth overall in the entire contest.
The band placed first in its class at the Columbia Central Marching Invitational and was also awarded a superior rating at two other different contests this year. This combination of achievement fulfills one component of the Tennessee Band Masters Sweepstakes award.
Baker said he hopes to qualify the band for this award in the spring with their performance at a regional Concert Performance Assessment event which will be held at White House Heritage High School March 13-15.
The band’s 2018 program “Words” featured a variety of music illustrating how everyone uses words to describe themselves and their world, how words are used to lift one another up, and how when words are not sufficient, that music can fill that void.
According to Field Commander and senior, Alex Copenhaver Pounds, “We all have our own special way of doing things and expressing ideas. With this show we expressed through marching and playing the thought that our differences are what we live for and that music and words alike build up the world.”
