Being a member of the orchestra was a highlight of my school days. I love music and still remember the fun we had at rehearsals and then the goose bumps the night of the performances. We practiced on the third floor "band room" and recently I made the trek up all those steps... very slowly and with lots of puffing... and to think how I used to run up and down! One rehearsal I was counting madly but missed the beat and clanged the cymbals during a rest. Wally just stopped the orchestra for a few seconds...

The last time I played drums was in a College of Wooster Alumni Band. I have, however, played my cello most of my years since WHS. OK, class of 59 and surrounding classes, "Roll off!":drum drum, drum drum, drummmmmmm, drum drum. Down to Maurer Field we go. Remember the loooong marches on Memorial Day through downtown and up Madison Hill to the cemetery and back, and how in some years this occurred after the all-night junior-senior prom? How empty life would be without music. My profession? Professor of Economics.

I pulled my clarinet out and played in one session of the Wadsworth community band a few years ago. It was great fun. Debating whether or not to go for this up-coming session as the rehearsals are once a week for 2 hrs and 15 min. Not used to playing that long - fingers get tired.

I was so lucky to be part of a great band. Will never forgot my first band practice as a freshman in 1957. Being a 3rd chair, the clarinets sat right in front of the drums. We were playing a Puccini intro where the band would march out as a straight line. The drummers crashed their sticks onto their drums and I screamed. Well, that stopped everything, and I will never forget the look on Mr. Emig's face as he started to laugh. What a wonderful man. Would still love to be in a marching band.

Music has always been a part of my life, and I hope it always will be. To not enjoy music is to miss out on some great times. I remember marching in the band. I went on to play lots of bass for "hootenannies" at OSU. Not noted for my scholarship, but noted for my abilty to play folk when bass players were scarce. Thank you Mr. Emig for convincing me that I had nowhere near the talent to become the jazz musician that I wanted to be.

Some of the greatest memories of my life were at Wooster High School and especially the fun times we had in the marching band. It was such a thrill marching from the high school to Maurer Field on those autumn nights. Mike Reed, Dick Treat and I had such a great time playing drums. We have remained friends until this day and often talk about our many memories of Wooster.

Jack Emig was my band instructor. Being in the band for three years, playing sousaphone, was one of the only happy events in my high school career. Mr. Emig taught me an understanding and love of music that has followed me all the days of my life. After school I played guitar for twenty years and even bass guitar for three years and now perform locally as a conga drummer. I have loved music consistently. Thanks, Mr. Emig.

He and Mrs. Emig are still teaching and playing in Florida. God bless Haskell's Rascals (Mike Reed, Dick Treat, and Terry Biddle). Thanks to Mr. Emig and Wooster High School for leading me into a career in playing and teaching music. Pax Vobiscum...

Music will always be an important part of my life thanks to Jack Emig and Bill Shepherd. I had a great time in band and worked hard. I made some wonderful friends and am still very close to one in particular. Jack Emig and Bill Shepherd helped shape my future. They expected nothing less than perfection. Neither director embarrassed us when we did something wrong, but each let us know in his own way that we were wrong and could do better. It was a lesson hopefully many of us took to heart for the future.

Ten years after graduation I met and married a guy who was a drummer for Wadsworth High whikle I was at Wooster! Our daughter ended up going to high school and college in Arizona and played the same clarinet I used while she was in her school bands. Someone once told my mother, while I was in high school, that all the nicest and warmest kids were in music programs. I found that to be true for my own daughter too! It was nice to find this page with the pictures. Brought back some fond memories. Thanks!

I think I was either last chair or close to it but loved being in the "in" crowd. I marched ten yards the wrong direction at a football game halftime show. How embarrasing! I remember band members losing shoes in the mud during one rainy halftime and another one losing his pants and not bothering to pick them up. He marched right out of them - he had shorts on underneath, luckily. I was a wallflower in high school, the only group I fit into was the band. It was great.

In addition to my years spent in WHS bands, I also played in the Wooster Jaycee Band and Terry Gardner's dance band. In fact, I was one of Terry's original players along with Carmer, Cotterman, Moore, Walters, and Young. I never attended school dances for the dancing as I was always a player. Presently I am a member of the Golf Coast Flute Choir of Manatee County. Since I live near Sarasota during the winter, I enjoy playing in an all-flute band of about thirty. We perform various concerts around the Manatee County area. I quite fondly remember my years in bands and having been blessed with the FANTASTIC frienships of fellow musicians!

The band experience was one of the best memories of high school. "Shep" was a talented director. We marched in the Hall of Fame Parade and also played at a Steelers game. I'm proud to have nieces who have been in the WHS Band under Dan Adams. We had fun in the marching band, but I wish we had done some of the "dance" moves which are now popular. Keep up the good work!

My dad thoght I should sing in Frs. Frey's choir. I was put in the alto section. I raised my hand one day to ask for the "cello" section to hear a section of the piece. Giggles embarassed me so much that I never raised my hand again!

The musical education, friendships, and opportunities I gained through the Woooster City Schools are among the greatest treasures of my life. I will be forever greatful for the doors that have opened to me as well as my children, through the excellent musical arts in Wooster. Many thanks to the men and women who invested in my life in the 60s and 70s, as well as to those who are currently helping shape our son. Music, thankd God, has made me richer for it's gift!

 The band was the best. We had diamond drills, toe lights, head lights, black lights, fire batons. Marching was an art that every member took pride in. Never were two home games the same show, even if there were 4 home games in a row. Never was there a "hole" or a line that wasn't straight. My highlight was a Disney show complete with fireworks. We even had to physically move 2 cars. That and the 1812 Overture.

I love the invite to the last Alumni night. Marching with the new band was neat. I met some old friends that I have not seen in 17 years! It was also neat to march with my sister, Tammy and my father, Kent Morrison. He was in the class of 1960. I would love to do it again in another 10 years. I hope I don't have to wait 17 years to run into my old band friends again. Wooster band will always rule!! Keep up the great work!

I'd like to say hello to Mr. Adams & Mr. Bennett. My time spent in Marching Band, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, and Orchestra were the best times of my life. It was a blast! I actually went on to be a Music Education/Performance major at Ohio Northern University. I hope to be able to be a part of the Alumni Band the next time around - I missed it the first time. Hope everyone is doing well and treasures their memories of high school band as much as I do.

My boyfriend's son is 14 and going into high school, and he's playing quads in the marching band. So, I'm having flashbacks to marching band in Wooster! Had to see if there was a web site up - there sure is, and it looks GREAT. I can't believe the band is so HUGE now. If Wooster's band has ~300 members then Jackson's band must have 500 by now...

Even though I sadly haven't played my trumpet in many, many years, I am still active in music through my church choir. My father-in-law was the long-time band director at a high school in the area I live now, and when he passed away a year ago, so many people wrote to say how much he had touched their lives and influenced them, and how many good memories they had of high school band. It just reminded me of how much the WHS music program, Mr. Adams and Mr. Bennett meant to me, and how many good memories I will always cherish from those times. I just had a son in January, and I hope he will be a part of a great high school music program as well. (I will be passing along my trumpet to him if he wants to play it...)

Ten years later and band is STILL most of my best memories from high school. Symphonic Band fostered a love for music in that I still indulge in to this day. I am a member of the Callanwolde Concert Band (www.calcb.org) and hope that all the alumni that treasure their band experience have found a group like this. If you miss band, dust off that instrument or buy a new one (you've earned it) and find yourself a community group to share that feeling again. Oh, is Mr. Bennett still being asked for a hall pass?

I can't thank all of the band directors enough for the wonderful four years they gave me in high school. I believe that without the knowledge, support and encouragement I received, I would not be as highly involved with music as I am today. The WHS Music Department is #1 in my book! I know that there are several band alumni who are serving in one area or another of the Armed Forces to protect our country from harm. Please keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks a lot, fellow graduates, for all the fun we had in choir. We worked hard, and our dedication showed in the concerts. I couldn't imagine singing with a better group of people, and that goes for those of you who haven't graduated yet. Another note for those still singing their hearts out: Keep working hard. You all have great potential vocally. I'd love to hear that you guys go to State competition. Trust me, you have the talent to get there. You just have to show everyone else now. Good luck. Take care.

I think back fondly on my years of being an orch dork at WHS thanks to the skill and commitment of Dan Adams, the other members of the music department, and of course my fellow orch dork friends. I would also like to say that in retrospect, Dan did an awesome job finding interesting and fitting music for such a wide range of skill levels while at the same time conducting many other groups and teaching various classes. Hopefully sometime in the future (when money for the arts is not on the wane, whenever and if ever that may be) more attention will be given to the development of the WHS orchestra. However, in relation to other high school orchestras, and some college orchestras I would like to applaud the WHS orchestra for remaining strong and sounding good. As a final note, I hope the musicals are continuing at the high school as they remain some of my best musical memories.

Upon moving to NYC a little over a year and a half ago to pursue my dream of performance, I have come to appreciate and respect what the teachers in the WHS Music Department do day after day to help guide us and to make us better musicians and performers. I am truly thankful for the Music Theory class that was offered, even if it was very difficult for me at the time. I use it every day of my life and am still learning a great deal. Also I am thankful for the endless sigh treading exercises in choir - UGH. It was honestly a pain at the time, but as I am auditioning all the time for musicals, I have seen the impact it can have. Pursuing a career in the music world is not an easy thing to do, but with the help of talented teachers at Wooster I have had a HUGE push in the right direction. Thanks again!

Being a part of a group is the best feeling. I miss the nightly practices, the bus rides and especially marching over to the field to the cadences. I hope the future band members share in the memories and have lots of fun.

I'm in our college marching band right now, and I love it. The only bad thing is that it is a glide-stepping band, and I prefer the chair step. I still to this day have Mr. Bennett in the back of my head yelling at me for being lazy and not marching properly. It's OK though, the music is good, and I would miss it so much if I would have quit. Plus, I get to rub it into the others' faces that I came from an awesome school and band.

As i write this, i can remember all of the good and the bad. It was the end of the biggest part of my life it was the end. there will be no more nights to spend on follis field, there will be no more script woo, no more music checks, no more. So much of me, so much of who i am was created on that field, and in a single night, it all ends. there will not be another time. All that i have put into that part of my life can never be gotten back. friends were made on that field, enemies created, music played to the ears of those willing to listen for the few moments of happiness it brought the group. the countless times our feet hit the soft green grass of the field in our shoes covered in the unforgetable spats or renown. the countless cadences played to those willing to have a good time and just belong to a bigger group and just jam. no more circles of close friends whammin away on the drum head to the beat created by all for all to hear. no more cries of words of excitement. no more chanting of random words to excite the crowd. no more "take it backs". no more "cymbals FLARE!". no more ups. no more drive or sly. the only remenants are those of the memories of all the above. the friendships that will last until they fail, the thought of happiness kept until faded away till nothing. most importantly, the legacy we left for the upcoming classes and our names to be lost to the sands of time is only to be remembered by the new rythms in the cadences, by the drills written and then recorded by channel 22. there will only be the thought, the thought of what once was, and will be for another person for us to share. there will only be then and now. and nothing can change that.

The time I spent in the WHS band was the most fun I have ever experienced thus far. I really do miss marching band and all of Mr. Adams' pirate jokes. The memories I made in band will stay with me forever. I miss band so much and wish I could go back to those days of marching and performing Script Woo! Go Band!!

I loved being in music. It was probably the best class I took (and the easiest...). Although it required occasional effort (concerts, taking care of the uniform, etc.) it was actually a fun experience. Having a class with a large group of friends was fun and we all shared something we had in common, music!!

Band was definitely my favorite part of high school. I will never forget the memories I made from being a member of the Wooster High Marching Band and the fun times I got to have with friends who were also in band.
