Last year, Solanco High School's concert band performed a number of composer Randall Standridge's creations.
"The kids really fell in love with him right away," said music teacher and marching band director Scott Weyman, "and I became a fan of the composer."
So when Weyman was looking for a program for this year's marching band, he looked at Standridge's shows.
"He scores a lot for middle and high school bands," he said. "I started to go through the options he has written for a marching band. He writes more contemporary style marching band shows."
Solanco High School's marching band is working on a program that will entertain spectators at football games while challenging the musicians, said director Scott Weyman.
