It’s Friday night and the football game is nearing halftime. As the students in the bleachers rush to get snacks and drinks, the marching band makes its way out on the field and begins to play.
Sophomore Kaylee Robinson has been in the Big Red Band for a little more than one year and has played the baritone for four years. Robinson joined band in sixth grade when her middle school offered it as an elective. Since then, she has continued to play through high school and has even started to learn trombone. The Big Red Band holds practice every week on Tuesdays and Thursdays and performs at the football games on Fridays.
According to Robinson, one thing she’s looking forward to in band is their trip to Georgia, which was postponed because of the coronavirus. She remarked that the global pandemic has changed other things as well, such as, less summer band camps and no performing at away games.
Not only is Robinson in marching band, she also plays euphonium in concert band when the football season is over. She stated that concert band is similar to marching band but she prefers marching.
In juggling school work and band, Kaylee Robinson doesn’t practice many other hobbies. “With band practice almost every day, I don’t really have time for anything else,” she said.
Robinson has 10 other people in her section and, while she admits that she is not the best one, she is going to continue band and hopefully she will be first chair someday.
