Sixth grade band to be planned
The Pecos Eagle Band is in the process of forming the sixth grade band
at Zavala Middle School. Students are to return an instrument choice form
to the Zavala band hall if they wish to be in band.
Band Director Merle Lenfest said that parents or guardians should not
fail to sign the student up for band because they cannot afford an instrument.
"We will find an instrument for every child that needs one," he said.
Representatives from Caldwell Music and Permian Music will be in the band
hall for instrument drives for any sixth grade student that will be playing
alto sax, cornet, trumpet, trombone and percussion from 4:30-7:30 p.m., Wednesday,
Aug. 21, at the High School Band Hall.
For all students who would like to play flute and clarinet, the representatives
will be in the High School Band Hall from 4:30-7:30 p.m., on Friday, Aug.
For more information contact Lenfest at 447-7218.
