Schools: Band gets support from community

By Bernadette Lauritzen

The Los Alamos High School Topper Band had a spring break to remember.
It marched its way down Main Street in the Walt Disneyland Main Street parade in Anaheim, Calif., last Sunday.
It was an event-filled trip.
The band performied in a “Soundtrack Session” with a Disney clinician, visited Disneyland and California Adventure parks, toured parts of Los Angeles, such as the Santa Monica Pier, Science Center, Rodeo Drive and saw a professional production of “West Side Story,” Topper Band Director, Zane Meek said.
Meek, who is in his fourth year here, left with the band last Saturday morning, for their first ever Disney appearance, performing “Gangnam Style,” and the “Manhattan Beach March,” while marching for Mickey.
“We would like to thank the community for their support and everyone for their commitment to quality music programs in the schools,” Meek said.
The team needed to raise roughly $70,000 for the trip, which averages out to about $900 per student.
“We also got a lot of help from the community and all of us want to make sure that they know how much we appreciated the help,” said parent Karen Mehlin.
