Drive-in band concert

Anton Akse, Guest Contributor

This concert was on December 16, 2020. It was the first time in my musical career I would not have an in person concert after all the days of practice. Essentially, this concert was a holiday themed performance that families would drive in to watch from their cars. They projected pictures of the students on to the side of the school and played the audio through very loud speakers. Students pre-recorded their parts to their pieces alone at their houses, and sent them to Mr. Tramel, who digitally put them together and blended each instrument. 

It felt very nice to even have a concert at all, after many months of no way to perform. However, of course, it did not give the satisfaction of a regular performance; but was an incredible effort my Mr. Tramel to create a fun and safe school event for his students.
