BUFFALO – The Medina Mustang Band performed on Friday at the state conference for the New York State United Teachers. The band performed before about 2,000 to 2,500 people, representing school districts from throughout the state, at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.

The band performed portions of its street show, “Miss Saigon” and the National Anthem. It was exciting and a source of pride when delegates from other schools complimented our students and their accomplishment in this program, said Kathy Dreyfus, publicity chairwoman for the Marching Band.

May is a busy month for the band starting with the Seneca Falls Pageant on May
15-16, the spring trip to a music festival in Cleveland from May 21-24, Medina’s Memorial Day parade on May 25, and the Gorham Pageant on May 29-30.

The Middle School Spring Concert is June 1 and the High School Spring
Concert is June 2, with both at Medina High School. The season finale is the Band Banquet on June 5.

The band also held its last pizza sale of the school year on April 25, and it was another sell-out. The band wants to thank the community for their continued support of the pizza sales. The photo includes Brianna Bellan (left) and Andrea Toussaint.
