Leipsic Band


Leipsic has a variety of sports, including basketball, football, and volleyball. Those are the big events in this little village, but what about the band? These funny and quirky people aren’t as weird as the movies make them to be. In fact, most of my best friends happen to be in the band, and they’re just as normal as any other person. Band has brought together people from other schools and different grades. Anyone in fourth grade or higher can be in a band while eighth grade and higher get to play at the football and basketball games. I decided to give the spotlight to the band people because they deserve more recognition. Standing in the hot sun wearing a heavy uniform? No thank you! As a former (not so good) flute player for the seventh-grade band, using that much air really makes a person lightheaded as well. They endure a lot trying to make a good show for everyone. Can you imagine how long the choreography must have taken while having to hit the right notes? It’s no Ohio State Football halftime show, but it’s still pretty intense.

I decided to go backstage and talk to the band director, Mr. Stein. He has been here since 2014. He chose to become a band director because he enjoys working with all the music. Stein likes working with the high school better, but who wouldn’t?

I also talked to Antonio Paso-Tero Jr. about his band experience. Antonio plays baritone saxophone. He joined the band because he thinks it is fun! His favorite part about the band is playing the instruments. His preference of game to play at is the basketball games.

There are 59 people in the band this year. Leipsic band is a great place to make relationships with others and learn a skill. With enough dedication and time, you can learn easily! So why not try out for band?
