Jayvaun Hill, a sixth grade
student at STEM Academy, who was voted assistant conductor, takes his turn at the podium today and proves he is a
qualified musician able to do the job. The students go over the
music for the day, knowing that when they are marching they will
be playing from memory, so they need to learn it well indoors
before they go outdoors.
They spend some time marching and
playing, but then are called to sit down for an important
decision: who will be their main two drum majors? It's time for
them to listen to the drum major candidates tell them why they
would make the best choice and then make a judgement.
Band Officers have been
appointed: Left to right they are: Jorge Vega - President, Adam
Engers - Vice President, Zamorah Lovell - Secretary, Saied
Beckford - Chief Financial Officer.
The East Orange
Unified Marching Band*(EOUMB) is no longer part of the
East Orange School District and has reorganized with the
East Orange Safe Haven Police Athletic League. That means
acquiring band instruments for all the students all over
again. We have been having an instrument donation
fund raiser that has acquired
many of the instruments, but there are still more needed.
Please help if you care and if you can.
