#beginquote# Our school last year began a new program, which gets more kids involved in music Instead of the traditional marching band, the band director on conjunction with an alumna have developed what they call "Fusion", after being challenged by the board to invigorate the music program. Fusion consists of a two tiered rolling stage withn percussion of all sorts, guitar, bass guitar, vocalists, flag twirlers, and cheerleaders performing up-beat pop songs, and patriotic tunes as well with a lot of enthusiasm and pep. The performances were so well received, that schools came to our home games to see the show. Sometimes it takes a different medium to capture the kids interest. My soon to be twelve year old, who refused to continue his music lessons in the middle school because of a very terse instructer is head over heels crazy about this program. He will be playing about six different percussion instruments between the field program, and from the bleachers during the games. All the kids put their heart and soul into this program, and it shows in their performances. I am excited to be involved. Only time will tell how long the interest will last, but eith the right individuals behind it, it should blossom. I am a fragment of my imagination #endquote#
