Marching Band back and better than ever

We can all agree that 2020 wasnt exactly a stellar year, mainly due to the pandemic that shut down and cancelled almost everything. That included the Roseville Marching Panthers, who couldn’t perform due to the limitations on the audience allowed at our home football games. However, the marching panthers are making a comeback and will be back in action in the spring so they can perform. 

 Daniel Chesher has been the director of the marching band for 16 years now. He plans on having the marching band have close to 4 to 5 practices throughout April before any performances start. And for performances, instead of the elementary and middle schools coming to the high school to see the show, Chesher has a different plan. 

“For the Spring, I would like to do a tour of the elementary schools and middle schools. This would probably take more than one day. I would also like to have a performance for family and friends in the afternoon or evening,” Chesher said. 

Senior Lucas Horsley joined the marching band when he was a sophomore and has stuck with it and is now a section leader for the low brass and reed instruments. Horsley was disappointed when the marching season was cut short but was ready to begin the new season. 

I’m happy that we’re having it, but I don’t know how to feel about it yet, but I’m ready to give it another try. 

With the end of the school year approaching, the marching wants to finish it with a bang and finally get to perform their show, A Night at The Disco, featuring songs from The Tramps, Earth, Wind and Fire, Barry Manilow, and Sister Sledge. It’ll be a night no one will forget. 

These are most of the awards and achievements that the Marching Band has won over the years. (Owen Lucente)
