1974-1975 South Hamilton High School Band
     The South Hamilton Senior High Concert Band of 1974-1975 was greatly honored this year by being asked to perform for the Iowa Music Educator's Association Convention which was held January 18, 1975 in the Fort Des Moines Hotel.   They were also kept busy at home preparing for the concerts which they performed in the high school gym in Jewell on December 8, March 2, and May 20.

      The last concert was a combined effort with the vocalists, as well as the art and home economic departments.   People attending the "Fine Arts Festival" first listened to a beautiful choral concert.  Then while walking to the gymnasium, they were able to view the many various art projects on display in the rotunda.  These projects included paintings, drawings, crafts, photographs, and pottery.  In the home economics rooms, blouses and other garments were on display as well as refinished furniture and hand-made pillows.   The instrumental concert featured trobone soloist Mark Whitlock in a breath-taking performance of "The Blue Bells of Scotland."   Two student teacher guests conducted pieces.   These guests were Mr. Dave Swaroff and Mrs. Barb Needham, both ISU students.  The jazz band concluded the evening and issued a special invitation to all people to attend the second "Old-Timers" Dance scheduled for May 31.

      The South Hamilton Band functions during the fall and spring seasons.   During the fall, for most of eight weeks, the band performed for pre-game and half-time shows at the football games.   Also in the fall, the Marching Band participated in a Marching Band festival at Carroll, Iowa.

     In the spring on alternating years, the band marches in the Drake Relays Parade at Drake University in Des Moines, and the Veishea Parade at Iowa State University in Ames.  This year they attended Veishea.

     In early summer, the band participated in the parade for Scandinavian Days at Story City, Iowa.   This year work was done in preparation for the trip to Winnepeg, Canada.   The Marching Band deserves a salute from South High for representing the school so well at the many functions.
