Strike up the band
To the editor:
Several days ago, a letter was sent in to the editor by Mr. Bob Carr, in regard to the "Amsterdam High School's band concert." I could not have said it any better than he did. Thank you Bob.
I personally would like to add that these students put in many long hours of hard work, practice and dedication, until the results are musically excellence. They are now under the direction of Mr. Michael Perry, who took over the position after Stephanie Boice retired last year, after many years of teaching. (A very hard pair of shoes to fill for sure.)
He is doing a remarkable job and should also be commended for his work.
The next time you hear that there is going to be a performance, take the time and check the Amsterdam Marching Rams/band perform.
