During an interview with the Marching Band News Network, Mr. Childress was asked what he attributed the band's success to. He credited the hard work of the students, a dedicated design team, and support from band parents as major factors which propelled the band's successful season. Extra time spent in Friday night and Saturday morning rehearsals helped to make the bands 2015 program “Mi Amor” the best that it could be. Throughout the season, the Mighty Warrior Band placed in the top of their class and were ranked in the top five at each competition. Earning the Grand Champion title at the end of the season made all of the hard work and extra practice time worth it.
Now that marching season has come to an end, Mr. Childress is working to place enthusiastic, hard working, students into private lessons. A collaboration between instructors, students, and parents helps students gain extra music instruction, in after school sessions. The Chilhowie Band Program is a strong advocate of private music lessons, as they promote additional growth in the student's musical skills.
The Chilhowie Bands will present their annual Christmas Concert on December 6, 2015 in the Chilhowie High School Auditorium, beginning at 2:00pm. Admission is free. Please come and enjoy the sounds of the season and celebrate the accomplishments of the Chilhowie Mighty Warrior Band!
