Strike up the band

Band members of The Sound of Pride of Berwick High School began the first of two grueling weeks of band camp Monday morning. Students put in a full 8-hour day Monday through Friday, with both outdoor practice as well as classroom time. BHS band director Walter Shepherd uses this time to introduce the music and marching formation/routine that the SOP will perform in marching festivals. Shepherd said the band has grown from about 60 students last year to more than 80. The show theme for the season is Americana, with songs like “Georgia on My Mind” and New Orleans jazz selections included.
