Dublin High School, Fallon and Wells Unite for Drumline and Color Guard Show

Dublin High School Winter Percussion

The music departments at Dublin High School, Fallon Middle School and Wells Middle School teamed up Friday night to put on a “Family Night” show featuring Drumline and Color Guard teams from all three schools. The first ever Family Night event featuring all three schools provided an opportunity for students to practice their routines in front their friends and families before taking the routines to competitions around the Bay Area. Drumline and Color Guard is a major extracurricular commitment for students and their teachers involving up to 15 hours per week in practices and competitions. Dublin High School students play a significant role in the middle school programs, volunteering weekly at both Fallon and Wells. Sean Kenney attended on behalf of the Dublin Unified School District Board of Trustees and observed, “The Arts provides kids with the opportunity to grow outside standard academics. The Arts really drives students, the other side of their brain, and helps educate the whole person.”

Paul Everts, Director of Music at Dublin High School, said, “Tonight we saw the two color guards from Fallon and from Dublin High. A color guard is a team of girls and boys performing a routine with equipment such as flags, sabres or rifles, usually to recorded music. We also saw the three drumlines from Dublin High, Fallon and Wells – all three schools now have drumlines. Drumlines march and perform maneuvers while playing their instruments. We saw excellent performances from all three schools tonight.”

OneDublin.org was on hand to capture sights and sounds from the event. Enjoy!

    Thank you OneDublin for sharing these amazing videos. My husband observes the Wells drumline practicing many days after school and he is both awed and inspired by the dedication of these kids (both the participants and the high school mentors). To see that there is such a strong program at both Dublin middle schools and the high school makes my heart proud. I am also very impressed by the high school students who mentor the middle schools. Thank you to all the faculty and students who dedicate their time to keep the music flourishing throughout DUSD. We are very fortunate indeed.
