Future Cougars take the field at the ‘Baum!

“Goodness! Gracious! Great Balls of Fire!”

Every year, junior high band members from McCord, Arbor Hills, and Timberstone are invited to play with the Southview Marching Band at Nusbaum Stadium. Students volunteer for the opportunity and attend one rehearsal after school to prepare. This year, 24 white-shirted junior high students joined the Cougars to perform “Great Balls of Fire” under the Friday Night Lights.

Band Director Ali Knowles energizes the young musicians by focusing them on their future. “You could be the future of the Southview band,” she explains. The excited smiles that answer her encouragement add some more light to the night, and the band’s performance is just that little bit more special.
