Burlington/Belmont Band at Football Game 9/21
If you had the chance to attend the football game against Belmont, you not only got to see the Red Devils improve to 3-0 on the year, but got to see two of the best bands in the state perform. While equally impressive during an extended halftime performance, more impressive was the two bands getting together at the end of the game to perform. Burlington's band, section by section, made their way over to the Belmont side. Eventually, they all made it over to form one band and played together, about 180 of them! You can watch the video here.
Assistant band director Faydeen Sateriale witnessed and to quote her, "the mutual respect and just plain "getting along" is an example all of us should emulate." As both a parent and band staff member I am so proud of our kids! I am also proud to be part of a great school district and town"!
I echo those sentiments, congratulations to all our students on a great performance.
