Enterprise High School Band to perform in national parade – WTVY

ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WTVY) – Enterprise’s Big Blue Band does more than perform on Fridays.

They are preparing to take their sound to the nation’s capital.

“It’s an honor for our band to be able to do something as big as this,” said Jessica Scott, a senior drum major.

Marching for Washington D.C. is a tall ask, but the band is up for the challenge.

“To know all the work I’ve put in is going to be shown off to the rest of the country is really cool,” said Jennifer Santiago, another senior drum major.

As they get ready for the big day, students reflect on what this opportunity means for them.

“It made me feel better about myself to be able to represent not just myself, but everyone around me,” said Scott. “It makes me feel like I can do more as a person.”

The band has been preparing for moments like this, and now they are ready to take their talents to the national stage.

As they gear up to take on D.C., the support that’s behind them is unmatched.

“It just feels really good to be able to showcase that talent and represent,” said band director Sean Weiler. “Hopefully (we can) make the people of this community proud.”

While students are living in the moment, Weiler wants them to learn from this experience too.

“This lets them know you can do so much through music,” said Weiler. “They have the opportunity to see so much history by marching in this parade in D.C.”

The band will perform this Saturday at the Cherry Blossom Parade. Bainbridge High School’s marching band will also be there.
