Welcome to the Reynolds Band 2020-2021 performance archive! Here you will be able to watch and share your fall and winter performance recordings (linked to Google Drive). Our performances take place in the spaces that we have available to us, in and out of uniform, in a variety of configurations (learning groups, cross-learning groups, etc.) and, depending on when we recorded, bands may have been set-up reversed in rooms.
A profound thank you goes to those students and adults that made these performance recordings possible and, most importantly, made our recording sessions SAFE. Additionally my thanks goes to the families of my students that have been so patient as the learning curve associated with producing performances for this “temporary reality” was quite steep!
These recordings are for us – for our families (and “fan-milies!”), for our communities, and for each other. They are a celebration of the learning that has continued to thrive at Reynolds during the pandemic despite many challenges and obstacles that we have overcome together. Your assistance in sharing these files with your family and friends is greatly appreciated!
In most instances, my students recorded these selections in ONE take to simulate a live concert experience. We learned a few weeks in that this is a challenge without a live audience – without our families, our friends, and our colleagues present. We miss you – and can’t wait to get back to normal!
Thank you for an incredible first four months of the school year. I am proud of you and proud to be your teacher!
Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday!
Reynolds Secondary School Band

FALL & WINTER PERFORMANCES:
Blue Band – Eternal Father, Strong To Save (The Navy Hymn) – by John B. Dykes / arr. John Edmondson [Note: a slide show depicting Reynolds family members who served in the armed forces accompanies this video]
***Apologies to those that sit in the front 2 rows of Blue Band! An SD memory card with the footage of the front rows has gone missing from a camera in the booth. 🙁 Unfortunately the over-head camera didn’t get everyone on the sides of those rows in the shot. Sorry, folks! Once I have the footage I will re-edit the videos so that footage is included and we can see you. – JD
