Marching to Celebrate the Discovery of America

In preparation for the Huntington Columbus Day Parade, the marching bands of East Meadow and W.T. Clarke high schools practiced their routines with the help of marching band clinicians.

Each school’s band and color guard set aside a full day at the end of September to improve their tone, accuracy and rhythm with individual instrument and group marching sessions.

To perfect their routine, W.T. Clarke’s students received assistance from Stony Brook University Director of Athletic Bands Dr. Christopher Parkers, high school music chairperson Steve Engle, band teacher Steve Barbieri and percussion teacher Steve Blutman.

The East Meadow High School students worked with Carl Boos, marching band clinic coordinator, as well as high school music chairperson Christopher Hale and music teachers Molly Tittler, Neil Walowitz, Zachary deVries and Gregory Sisco.

The community is encouraged to come out on Sunday Oct. 9 and support both bands during the Huntington Columbus Day Parade at 12:30 p.m. beginning on Main Street.
