Preparing for Exhibition


 Each year the Hall County marching band programs hold  the exhibition. In “exhibition” they perform their programs and show to the judges and other schools what they have to offer. This year the East Hall High School Marching Band is proud to host it.


   The band has been working since July to complete their 2019 program entitled “Shattered”. The exhibition will be held on September 24, 2019, and it will take place at the East Hall High School Stadium. They, along with many other bands will be performing their shows for the Hall County community and receive feedback from judges to see what they must work on before competing. Bands such as Chestatee, Cherokee Bluff, Johnson, North Hall, West Hall, and Flowery Branch High School will be performing. 


Adam Youngman has been the band director at East Hall High School for about two years now. Him along with Kyle Bickwit, band director at East Hall Middle School, have been working hard to perfect the show and make it as competitive as it can be for this years marching band season.


“We just completed our show on Saturday, so now we have our full competitive show on the field. We’re going to clean the first, second, and third movement and make sure we’re solid not only musically but visually as well. We have 3 more rehearsals in preparation for that.” Mr. Youngman explained. 

As a school,  East Hall is known for having a successful band program. Making second overall at the Hart County competition in 2018 and getting all superiors in LGPE. The band has pulled through the past weeks to complete their competitive show and are adding the finishing touches.


Gavino Tello is a senior this year at East Hall High School. He is brass captain for the marching band this year and is excited for the competitive season to start.


“We still have some work to do but we’re very close to having a competitive show. We are on the right track.” Gavino Tello explains. 


The band has been planning for weeks in preparation for this event. They will be selling things in the concessions such as tacos and tamales. There will also be t-shirts for sale during the exhibition. The band is excited to show their hard work and what they have accomplished in the last months. Admission for exhibition will be eight dollars for adults, five dollars for students, and free for children under 6 years. Make sure to stop by and support our wonderful program.
