Ode to the Band

Ode to the Band

by Becky Hall for the 2013 Band Seniors

A few years ago you started your journey,

at this very fine institution, our Legend of learning

You chose band, concert, symphonic, or jazz

Some said to yourselves, “I’ll try marching band”.

“They look like they must really be having some fun”

They march and they chant, “crispy bacon, yum, yum, yum, yum”

You marched and you played your flags held high

So often to be quickly followed by a sigh

as a voice from on high rained down from the sky,

STOP! DO IT AGAIN!  or GO BACK!  or RESET!

And you knew that your water break wasn’t coming just yet.

But you never gave up, you never gave in

you practiced again and again and again

Through freezing wind and scorching sun

You started to think, “this is really not so much fun!”

You challenged each other to be the best you could be

and in the process became a band that everyone wanted to see

Your notes became scales, became riffs and runs

Your music now etude and prelude, symphony and fugue

Crowds gathered together to hear you play

from stadiums and band-shells to city streets near and far

from the school you call home to tropical islands afar

When you entered the stage, the audience whispered,

“This is Legend, they’re good, let’s watch, and listen.”

As it all came together we watched you in awe

to see you so proud, so strong and so tall

We saw you had changed from the children we knew

to young adults that would soon be off to lives and places all new

And although you may think that the end is here

with just a few notes to go, your crescendo is near

think of all you know now that you didn’t know then

before you became part of the Legend Titan Band

Mr. Otis’s coaching will help you succeed,

you’ll have the strength whenever you need!

They say that music stays in your head and triggers old memories you thought had long fled

replaced by life’s more current events instead

So some day in the distance, in some other place and time

When these memories have all but ceased to be

You may hear a piece of music or a count 1! 2! 3!

And you will stand a bit taller and feel a bit prouder

You will replay the command and know the reply,

WHO’S BAND IS THIS?  MY BAND!
