It’s that time of year where our football games are coming to an end. Though it is sad for all, it’s especially sad for class of 2018 seniors. For the CVHS band seniors, senior night is one of the most special nights that they get to experience. It includes a special dinner reserved for seniors only, after they are called up one by one to meet their parents on the field. To top it all off seniors give a speech to all of the band members.

These senior speeches are a right of passage for seniors to get up and talk about their experience in band. For all of the seniors to get up and give thanks for their time being there. It takes roughly 4 hours, 8:30 to 12:30 pm. All of the section techs (or known as the adults who work with them during band camp) come back just for this night.

One of the section leaders for the Chippewa Valley High School Varsity band, Natalie Aziz says, “being a section leader made this experience even more special and I’m so glad I was given the privilege of providing for the band like this.” She then talked about her speech she was able to give and offers this advice, “personally my first year was rough, it was a big adjustment at first, but man am I glad that I stuck it out, I’m so extremely thankful.

Shianna Coe is a member of the Chippewa Valley color guard who is just as involved as the band members. “Senior night was awesome! I’ve waited 3 years for that moment. When they called my name and I got to walk across the field to meet my parents, nothing could compare to that moment,” Coe says.

Though it is sad to see all of the senior band members gather together for their last performance, it’s exciting to see where else this experience might take them.
