Spring Concert
"An Evening of Delightful Music"
April 24, 2003
(as we ended this remarkable year and this remarkable era of the Band Scholars and our Tiger Bands with distinctive flair and flavor)

Right: Little Jason works to ensure the "technology" is fully-functional

seemingly - for no particular reason - while all of the other Worker Bees are - well "working" - Mitchie takes a moment to abuse poor, young Alchy
Left: older xylophones - like many of us - sometimes need a little "shoring-up" Right: one of our newer musical  "gadgets" - our much-beloved and oft-used crotales

PJL "seems" happy

Jason Allen Reinhardt, Senior Band Scholar from Union, Kentucky, is featured as the trombone soloist on the Arthur Pryor classic - The Blue Bells of Scotland - it was truly a barn-burner

Later in the evening, Little Jason was also honored for his two years of service in the prestigious role of Director's Assistant - where he has distinguished himself as an exemplar of excellence, dedication and service

Whitney Gae Castle, Elder Band Scholar from Paintsville, Kentucky is honored for her years of service to our Tiger Bands - as our "Band Coordinator" - Whit is loved and beloved by all - and we shall miss her dearly
One of the very special moments of the evening was when Emily Hales, Elder Band Scholar from Silver Spring, Maryland, was honored as our Outstanding Tiger Band Member of the Year. "Killer" has served our Tiger Bands as Spiritual Advisor, has been twice featured as soloist, and has been a three year member of the Kentucky Intercollegiate Band
