“It’s been a long time coming,” said COHS Band Director Trent Graves. “It’s been fun to see the kids grow. They have a very bright future and are set up to do some really great things.”
Appropriately enough, the three-movement piece is called “Phoenix Rising,” and involves beautiful banners and props. The COHS Ag and Building Trades helped build and carry the props. The piece will be performed in its entirety during halftime at the last home game of the year on Friday, Nov. 2.
The COCISD band program has enjoyed tremendous growth under the guidance and leadership of Graves, Lincoln Junior High Band Director Suzanne Beavers, and Asst. Band Director Isabel Talley. We are all looking forward to the band's Christmas Concert on Thursday, Dec. 13, at 6 p.m. in the high school cafeteria.
