            September brought yet another activity-filled year for the annual Fall Festival Sept. 27. Fall Fest seemed to sneak up on many of the groups that were to perform, but the directors said they were still pleased with the performance. The Cardinal Pride Band showed its talent at the bandshell after marching in the parade.

“Performances were outstanding, as usual,” band director Dennis Kerr said.

Band members played a variety of music for the community that lasted 20 minutes and ended their performance with “Hail Conway”.

After the band, the choir members sang “Tattoos on this Town” to go along with this year’s theme,“There’s no place like home.”

“Our class picked the song, and we performed it okay,” sophomore Rachel Doffing said.  

Cardinalaires sang “The Star Spangled Banner” before the parade then met up again to perform after the band and choir. They performed a Disney Medley with a few dance moves to keep the audience entertained.

“They went better than expected considering the lack of practice,” junior Ryan Harbour said.  

As a new tradition, the Cardinalaires, along with the middle and high school choirs, sang “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” to end the vocal performances.


In order to keep the beat, senior Garrett Harman plays the bass drum. Hartman has been involved in band for four years in the percussion section.
