Band Celebrates Halloween with Young and Old

The Western Wayne High School Marching Band took their show on the road for Halloween festivities on Monday, Oct. 30.

 First, the students gave a performance to elementary students in the district at the R.D. Wilson School and on the same day, they performed in the community at the Wayne Woodlands and Julia Ribaudo Nursing Homes. They also included in their day a performance for the Western Wayne Middle School and Evergreen Elementary School as well.

The band students were thrilled to be able to perform for these very special audiences.  All of the students and nursing home residents who got to see the performances felt a lot of Halloween spirit.

“I am so grateful to be able to go out and perform in the community,” one of the color guard captains, sophomore Kayelin Martin said.  “It adds another layer to our performances, and we get to have such fun experiences with new audiences.”

Fellow color guard captain senior Rebekah Palko agreed.

“It was so wonderful to be able to go out into the community for our Halloween performances,” Rebekah said.  “I really enjoy performing for various audiences.”
