Pork and Bands will continue its long-running tradition this Saturday at Warren County High School with the annual festival benefiting the local band programs.
“We will have the high school band, middle school band, county bands, winter guard and Pioneerettes all performing,” said Trina Fariss of the Warren County Band Boosters. “Music begins at 3 p.m. and food will be served at 4 p.m.”
Tickets will be available at the door, with serving in the cafeteria and performances in the nearby auditorium at WCHS. There will also be several games and a silent auction. A drawing will also be held with prizes including a 32-inch TV and an iPad.
Fariss noted the annual event is key in providing funds for the county’s many band programs. This year, the high school band is planning a trip to Cedar Point, Ohio where it will perform at the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame.
“They are very excited about the trip,” Fariss said, noting it is scheduled the week after school is out this May.
Along with the trip, Fariss said there is considerable expense to keep instruments updated, noting a recent expenditure on percussion equipment cost thousands.
Fariss said the tradition of Pork and Bands is something the program looks forward to continuing each year as the bands showcase their talents before family and friends before the end of the school year. For many of the seniors, it will be the last local performance of their high school careers making it an even more special concert.
“We hope everyone who can come out will come join us for good food and good music,” Fariss said.
