Although school didn't open until August 29, Elizabeth Martin already started her first teaching job weeks in advance.
Martin, who was hired earlier this year to direct Solanco's middle and elementary school bands, has wrapped up her first band camp.
The music in this year's halftime show is familiar, Solanco High School band director Scott Weyman said last week.
"We're doing a Queen show, based on the music from the British rock group," he said.
A lot of listeners as well as musicians know the songs, and that can be a challenge for the band.
