Mr. Ian Peterson, Band Director of Anthem Elementary in the Deer Valley Unified School District came down for a day on Tuesday, March 15 to hang out with kids at Herrera! Here are some pictures of him working with the fourth grade Woodwinds Class.

Mr. Peterson talking about the piece we were practicing.
Our Junior High Panther Orchestra did a GREAT job representing Herrera at the MLK, Jr. Art Show at the State Capitol on January 25th. We got a lot of compliments about our girls' performance of Celtic Fiddle, Mariachi and Concert pieces. Our two Violin Soloists did an outstanding job! Way to go girls! (Pics/Videos to come at a later date).
Our Junior High Panther Marching Band did a great job at the PESD mid-year convocation on January 26th. Many people were blown away by the fact that they marched in AND had the music memorized (way to go JH!!). I know it sometimes feel that we perform The Hey Song a lot, but this time, we were requested! Your reputation preceeds you.
Next week we have two performance opportunities for the Junior High Band and Orchestra. On Tuesday, January 25th, the Panther Orchestra was invited to perform for the MLK Jr. Art Show for PESD at the State Capitol. Come support our art and orchestra programs from 4:30-6 at the Capitol!
On Wednesday, January 26th, the Panther Band will be performing in the Herrera PAC for the PESD Convocation. We even received a special request for the marching band to perform and get the district pumped up for the second semester! Unfortunately, parents are not allowed at this event due to limited seating. Don't worry, there will be plenty more performance opportunities!
