Some if not most famlies know by now that Kenyon fell seriously ill over the summer. The good news is Kenyon is getting better, but that doesn't mean things are going to be easy for Kenyon as he recovers and gets back to work. With that said, I have started a youcaring fundraiser with the hope to raise funds to help Kenyon pay bills and medical costs he has incurred. For the past four years Kenyon has worked with the Warren band and color guard as the designer and main instructor of the color guard. His creative designs have also helped the marching band as a whole climb to higher levels of design and execution of visual effect. It would mean a lot to me and Kenyon if you would consider making a donation so that Kenyon could rest easy while he recovers knowing that money was there to help him keep going financially.

Wonderful World is an original composition propelled by the irony of...is it or is it not a wonderful world we are living in. The music and visual work in tandem to set the scene of a post apocolyptic world. Perhaps all is ok, Perhaps all is not ok. Although the show concept and musical scoring is original, two well known songs appear in the fabric of the show. "What A Wonderful World" made popular by the infamous recordings of Louis Armstrong and Verdi's "Reqiuem, Dis Irae". The musical scoring is rich in diversity of texture, timber, technical demand, vitoustic solo and soli sections and stunning sampling and effects. Costumes for both band and color guard, staging and visually stunning flags align the musical and visual aesthetics. This show is sure to entertain and provoke intellectual resopnse. Wonderful World performed by the Award Winning Warren Band & Color Guard is coming to a stadium near you.

WHAT'S OUR NEXT FUNDRAISER?
7th Annual Field Tournament! October 7th...ALL DAY!
For the past 7 years the Warren band and color guard has been hosting a Field Tournament here on the Warren Campus. This event requires hundreds of volunteers. Prior to the event students are asked to secure a minimum of $50 in ad sales. These ads are placed in the field tournament program that is sold at the event. Ad's can range from local businesses or families putting in ads to congratulate their child for their time and hard work in band and color guard. Ad packets will be coming home during SPA. Please help us by talking to local businesses to secure ads for our tournament program.
We need your help! We need donations for our concession stand and we need adults to volunteer the day of event. On Monday 9/18 a letter was given to your son/daughter describing all of this. Please ask them for this letter. The same letter is right here (see below). Thank you for your help!
