  • Sunday, August 18, 2019 12:00 AM

    It’s that distinctive time of year when summer meets fall, shoulders go pad to pad and cymbals crash. Directors with a mission and musicians with a common vision come together in the simmering summer heat to grind out practices in preparation for the glorious Friday-night-lights-performances that beckon us to be part. Community is built on Friday nights in the fall when athletes and musicians walk onto a football field to give their very all as part of a something bigger than themselves. They stand on the field and look into an ocean of faces. These faces represent a myriad of life supporters - grandparents, parents, teachers, friends - all there to revel in the experience of physical prowess, game strategy and musical mastery. Athleticism and the Arts have complimented one another since the beginning of time. We applaud the fine pursuits of our Friday night warriors and take a moment to catch up with a director leading the charge, Director Bob Sloan.
