South African Suite by James Higgins and Drums of Darkness by Larry Neeck


About this performance, Mr. Liddell wrote:

"This was our performance at the WTSBOA concert festival last March.  We played South African Suite by James Higgins and Drums of Darkness by Larry Neeck.  We received All "Superior" ratings for our performance and a "Superior" rating for sight-reading.  Because of all superior ratings we were invited to perform at the State Concert Festival in Nashville this April.  Sadly, we aren't able to go because we didn't have enough money in our account to pay the $300 dollar entry fee in time for the November deadline.  Here is the link to the results! http://www.wtsboa.com/MembersOnly/PDF_Forms/ConcertFestMemphisSr2010.pdf

"We are still trying to raise funds for needed fees, equipment, and travel.  We are actively in search for possible sponsors for the band program.  We have sent out sponsor letters to several local businesses with little success... If you know of any East High Alumni that are philanthropists, business owners, managers, CEO's, or maybe just interested in contributing to the cause of helping the band program, please forward them the letter."
