The 2017-2018 Marching WolfPack Band is ready to go! After participating in a grueling, but satisfying, weeklong band camp from July 31-August 4, the students were excited to perform their first halftime show of the season at Mt. Vernon Presbyterian School on August 25.

This year’s halftime show is entitled “Echoes from the Dark Side- Villains in Action” and features familiar songs from Dracula, Jaws, Phantom of the Opera, and The Grinch, along with "Cruella de Ville" from 101 Dalmations and "Emperor’s March" from Star Wars.

The band is under the direction of Band Director Stacy Quiros, Color Guard Instructor Michelle Johnson, and Drum Major Matthew Oluyide.

Band captains: Emma Farrar, Donovan Pearce, Joseph Schwartz, Evan Gossett, and Zachary Justice
Drum line captains: Joshua Orr and Julian Munoz
Color guard captain: Meghan Wray
Tuba soloist: Jack Krahel

The show’s marching drill and two arrangements were created and designed by junior trumpet player Donovan Pearce.

Mrs. Quiros said, “This has been a truly outstanding start to the season! The students are working together, the new marchers are catching on quickly, the leaders are stepping up into strong roles, the discipline and enthusiasm are great, and God is blessing all of our efforts! I can’t wait to 'wow' the crowds this year!”

The Whitefield WolfPack marching band has 49 members in grades seven through 12 and will be performing at all home and away football games. Come see them in action!
