NEW BUFFALO — Ayrielle Hoyt was named the new High School band director in New Buffalo during the July 25 Board of Education meeting.
A week later she was leading a week of band camp.
“What a way to be introduced to New Buffalo!” Hoyt said, adding “It was exciting to get to meet the whole group right as we’re getting going.”
.“The kids have been really great,” she said during band camp. “We’ve gotten a lot done despite the heat. … they complained a little but they still worked really hard.”
The band spent the week learning its 2022 Road Trip show and performed part of it during an Aug. 5 show (which features “Hit the Road Jack;” an East Coast medley which includes “On Broadway,” “The Devil Spent Down to Georgia” and the “Mickey Mouse Theme;” “California Girls;” and “American the Beautiful”).
Drum Majors for 2022 are Evan Spriggs and Liz Schmock.
