Sturgeon Bay band commissions 50th anniversary musical arrangement

By Tim Kowols       

For the first time in its history, the Sturgeon Bay High School band will have a music piece it can truly call its own.  The band commissioned composer Randall Standridge of Arkansas to arrange a piece to commemorate the school's 50th anniversary.  Sturgeon Bay band director Heidi Hintz talked with Standridge about her group's strengths and preferences earlier this year before letting him get to work. Hintz says having the piece commissioned will give students a chance to see the composition process from creating an idea to getting it published.

Band students fundraised $3,500 to help make the composition happen. Hintz and the Sturgeon Bay band hope to get an initial draft of the piece in January or February before premiering the final arrangement at graduation.
