  • Band Performance at Busch Stadium

    Sunday April 8th the ACHS Band took a trip to St. Louis to play before the Cardinals vs. Diamondbacks game. The band has been playing at Busch Stadium for four consecutive years, ever since Mrs. Berg became the teacher. Performing here is a big fundraiser for the band allowing them to raise funds for the band department. Every year the place is packed to see the ACHS Band perform. The band usually has a set list of at least ten songs, as well as cadences for the drum line. The band members helped select their best pep band songs to perform at the game. The day of the performance the weather was not very pleasing. Forty degrees with high winds is not an ideal atmosphere to play an instrument in. Despite the weather, the band played well. It’s hard to get a well-rounded sound in the cold but the band managed to do so. The crowd definitely enjoyed to see a great performance right before the game. The community was also very happy to see the hard work from the students pay off. When asked about his favorite part of the game Austin Wendling, a senior band member, said “I enjoyed the fight, my least favorite part was the cold weather.” Also when asked if there was one thing he could change he replied with, “The weather!” After the performance the band members enjoyed watching the game with their friends, and had a great time!

    Despite the cold weather and the St. Louis Cardinals losing to the Arizona Diamondbacks, it was a successful day for the ACHS Band.
