    Halloween Dress-up Performance

    Post  eileenchow on Tue Oct 06, 2009 10:43 pm

    Mummies, and ghosts, and witches, oh my! Seeing as Halloween is rolling around the corner, it is quite common to see many flaunting their scary/ cute/ original costumes. It is uncommon, however, to see those said people boasting their costumes while playing an instrument, marching in set routines, or tossing flags through the air while performing in the midst of a football field. This year’s annual Halloween Dress-up Performance features all of this and more, as our AHS colorguard, marching band, and varsity percussion show off their perfected performances in unique outfits. “The band spends a lot of time focusing our creativity through the musical arts, but it will be awesome to see everyone’s creativity when they show off their costumes,” sophomore band member Alex Steven says.
    Occurring on October _30(?)_, the performers for this year’s Halloween Dress-up will display their original costumes and exhibitions during the half-time of our home football game. Different sections of groups may choose to dress up according to a specific theme or create their own costumes. The “costumes can be fun, but must be appropriate to march or dance in” informs sophomore colorguard member Leslie Ledeboer.
    Band will be performing their Egyptian-themed field show, entitled Spice, Perfumes, and Toxins and. The music is performed for the show is base of from a national geographic feature on Egypt. Band members are diligently practicing and perfecting their show through their rigorous practice schedule. Members of band must be ready to start from 7:40 am all throughout first period. Afterschool sectionals and concert band period are also spent towards endless band practicing.
    One of the most memorable costumes of the previous year’s Halloween Dress-up includes the Varsity Percussion’s snare drummers, who donned pieces of fabrics onto their drums to dress up as different sodas and drinks. The year previous to last year, the snare drummers dressed their drums as Mario Karts with different characters on them. Alex Stevens claims that there was a “male trombonist dressed up as Princess Peach.” junior percussion member Daniel Zaki recalls how the “tenor section dressed up as rock, paper, and scissors” and the “bases were [outfitted] as mariachis.” Since percussion is widely known for pulling out exceedingly creative costumes for this event, Daniel Zaki wants to “see if they can top [their costumes] this year.”
    Being that performers in costumes are not an everyday sight, many are enthusiastic about this event. Sophomore colorguard member Johanna Gunawan is feels that it is “a lot of fun to see what people dress up as”. Mandy Chan, senior band member agrees and says that “this event is interesting in that it gives the band members more leeway since [we] get to use [our] creativity to design their own outfits.” Freshmen band member Davina Nguyen is “really excited for it” because she feels that “it’s a fun way to express yourself without looking really stupid [since] a lot of people are probably dressed the same way.”
    Other than being able to enjoy an epic game of football, the Halloween Dress-up performance also gives you the opportunity of seeing everybody’s creative Halloween costumes so that you may come up with ideas for your own Halloween costumes. Who knows, you may even get to see Batman playing the flute.
