Bands enjoy San Francisco

The bands left for an afternoon in San Francisco on April 6 from school at 7:30 A.M. As a part of their trip they performed for the ACSI Festival at Rincon Valley Christian on April 8. The Santa Rosa ACSI is an adjudicated festival where three music professionals gave the different groups musical ideas.

Along with their performances the bands spent some of their spare time seeing the San Francisco Symphony and exploring the city with friends.

?I would have to say my favorite part of the trip was probably just hanging out with all my friends,? Andrew King, ?06, said. ?Although I will always remember our bus rides and Pier 39.?

While the city provided endless sources of entertainment, mishaps were not in short supply.

?I remember a couple of the kids almost got off the wrong tram at the BART station,? Paul McEntee, band director, said. ?It was really funny but I wont embarrass them by giving out there names.?

Performing for the festive was just a part of the memories that were made on the musical groups trip.

?One of my favorite memory was taking a boat over to Alcatraz n the pouring rain and huddling under trash bags to stay warm,? Corinne Pogue, ?06, said. ?Not to mention people were taking pictures of us because we looked so funny.?

Between shopping, baseball games and performing for others the bands spent a lot of time just hanging out with each other.

?We had a lot of fun just walking around and shopping in San Francisco in Ghirardelli Square and Union Square,? Samantha Grizz, ?07, said. ?We also went to Alcatraz which was very interesting and kind of creepy.?

The bands will next be performing their spring concert on May 16 at Riverpark Bible Church at 7 P.M.
