The NHS band hosted an evening concert on Monday January 25 in the auditorium at 7:30 p.m. They performed various songs including “Festivo”, “National Emblem”, “Memorial Ode” by Dwight Beckham and “Night on Fire” by John Mackey. Clarinet player senior Auruoa Castillo claims that she joined band in high school because she thought it would be a fun experience and was a good way to get involved.
“It kept me busy, always gives me something to do. So I’d say it has [impacted me in a positive way],” Castillo said.
Castillo has made many relationships through her time in band.
“As of the relationships I’ve made, I’d say it’s made a significant impact on my high school career,” said Castillo. “A lot of good memories to look back on.”
Castillo does not play on continuing her clarinet skills in college.
