Nonstop music reverberated in the auditorium and music rooms of Glenelg High School last weekend. Bands from all the high schools in Carroll and Howard counties proudly played their best music in the annual District VIII Band Festival. Glenelg High School Music Department played host for the event.

After a short warm-up period in the choral music room, each band went to the auditorium stage to play three prepared pieces selected by their band directors from approved lists.

The Glenelg Symphonic Band, under the direction of Barry Enzman, again played a stellar performance of difficult music and brought the large crowd of well wishers to their feet.

Each band followed its performance with a trip to the band room for a sight reading assessment, designed to prove how well the young musicians understand music. Glenelg High School's band again received the highest rating possible in the combined events.

The Howard County Elementary School band concert last Thursday was wonderful. The band played six pieces flawlessly, though many of their rehearsals were canceled due to our winter weather. From Pointers Run Elementary School, Christina Bonebreak, Shannon Curtin and Blake Narr added their talents to the group.
