A&E Brief: Elementary band students from local schools visit Citrus Valley High School

By MAGGIE SNAVELY and CHRISTINA ANDRONESCU

Elementary students practiced for their performance in the upcoming Christmas Parade at Citrus Valley High School on Nov. 22. These students will showcase all their hard work at the annual Redlands Christmas parade, which will take place on Dec. 7 in Downtown Redlands.

Citrus Valley band members worked with the elementary students to master their varied instruments through fun and interactive exercises. The elementary band practiced their marching on the Robert J. Hodges stadium track with the help of Citrus Valley’s marching band drumline.

After the long day of work, the kids were treated to a performance of the marching band’s current field show.
