Beginning on July 31, Connetquot High School’s marching band lined the football field for their annual camp, preparing for the upcoming school year’s many performances.
Led by band directors Greg Johnson and Stacy Stollberger, the marching band’s student-musicians practiced marching basics and focused on learning and memorizing the music and drills. The goal of the camp was to prepare for the home football game halftime shows and Newsday’s marching band festival, happening in the 2023-24 school year. At the week’s end, the marching band students performed all they had learned for their parents in a preview show.
“We’re really proud of all the hard work the kids are putting in. They’re sacrificing their summer vacation to get a head start on the school year,” said Stacy Stollberger. She also noted that the camp provided a great opportunity for ninth grade students to meet upperclassmen and for those students to welcome them to the band department.
