Yosemite High School Band Notes

OAKHURST — The Yosemite High School (YHS) band started this school year on a high note thanks to school seniors Drum Major Hunter Murphy and Drum Captain Jeff Foster.

For their Senior Project, these two seasoned band members held a band camp during the summer to prepare high school students for marching shows and competitions.

The camp consisted of 22-plus hours of learning music, marching and having a great time.

They wrapped up with a Kick-Off Dinner for the kids and their parents. After dinner, the kids demonstrated their accomplishments for their proud parents.

Come out and cheer for our football team and then enjoy the half-time show the band members have worked so hard on, “Batman Movie.”
