Catching up with the bands…

Written by Sidony Ridge, The Eagle Senior Writer

It’s been a good year for the Obama Marching band, despite the dwindling numbers.  “The band still has the same drive and heart that it has in the past,” says music and band director, Mrs. Sharif-Lucas. In addition to the marching band, her students include those who have never played an instrument before, and the concert and string ensemble. They have been working very hard in preparation for the annual Winter Concert.

What Mrs. Sharif enjoys the most about her work is watching the students “grow over the years as good people.” Having always loved music, she is very proud to see students come far in only a few short months.

Although Obama’s Marching Band has officially ended this season the beginning, concert, and string ensembles are still going strong. Mrs. Sharif, is currently having the Winter Concert on Thursday evening at 7:00 pm. This concert includes the beginning band, concert band, and the string ensemble, along with the choral ensemble.   Hope to see you there!
