Advanced Band in Pella Print

The Middle School Advanced Band played steel pan drums and marched in the Tulip Time parade all within a 4 hour period on Friday, May 6th. The 65 member marching band was treated to a free clinic at Central College by Stan Dahl, percussion instructor at the college at noon. Students not only learned about the construction, history and different steel pan drums, but all 65 members of the band experienced playing the drums. Following the clinic, the band members marched in the Pella Tulip Time afternoon parade playing the Beatle's classic, "I Wanna Hold Your Hand". The band was led by Drum Majors Erika S. and Ellie T.
