It's a performance that might be a little saucy.
The annual Pork and Bands concert is set to march into the Warren County High School auditorium this Saturday beginning at 2 p.m.
Five different musical performances are on the schedule, along with routines from the Pioneerettes and color guard. Admission is free, although there is a charge for food, including the band’s secret-recipe BBQ.
“This is a great way to end the year and show how much growth we’ve had as a band,” said WCHS band director Duane Farnham. “It’s been a memorable year, complete with a grand championship in the fall at the marching contest in Crossville.”
The WCHS band had a highly acclaimed halftime show called “The Bad Girls of Pop.” It featured songs from pop female rockers, including “Wrecking Ball” from Miley Cyrus.
Saturday’s Pork and Bands is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. with a color guard exhibition. At 2:30 p.m., the WCMS percussion ensemble is scheduled to perform, followed by the WCHS percussion ensemble at 3 p.m. A routine from the Pioneerettes is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
Concessions begin at 4 p.m., followed by three band performances beginning at 5 p.m. The band performances, in order, include the WCMS sixth-grade beginning band, WCMS 7-8 grade intermediate band, and the WCHS Pioneer Pride Marching Band.
“The high school band has a routine that will appeal to veterans with a flag folding ceremony set to music,” said Farnham.
