Freedom 50th Anniversary

What a great day! Thank you to all the Freedom alumni who came out to make music together on Saturday April 22, 2017. After just a few hours of rehearsal, alumni from almost every graduating class performed a concert. My students were very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed performing next to former band and chorus members. Thank you all again for being a part of this great event. Thank you to all the directors and former directors,  Mr. Demkee, Mrs. Schwartz, Mr. Alonzo, Mr. Zettlemoyer, Mr. Lynn, Mr. Hamman, Mrs. Hubbard, Mrs. Parker, Mr. Sak, Mrs. Ocker, and especially Mr. Voplato for all of the work she did putting this concert together. We hope you had a wonderful time!

Alumni Band at Homecoming: Thanks to everyone that performed on Friday October 6 for Freedom's homecoming. It was a great night. About 70 FHS alumni performed at pregame along with the current Patriot Band. We rehearsed the drill and marching for a half hour, went through the music, and performed. Thanks to Mr. Demkee for joining the alumni and conducting the alma mater. I hope everyone who performed had a great time! I know the kids really enjoyed having you play along side of them. Here's links to pictures and videos:

Freedom and East Hills Rededication: Don't forget, Freedom's rededication on Sunday October 15 starting at 1pm. Freedom and East Hills bands and choirs will be performing, there will be speeches by former principals and alumni, food, games, and schools tours. Hope to see you there!
