Algoma band staying in rhythm

Looking different is still sounding good for the Algoma band program. For the foreseeable future, the Algoma bands have traded their usual rehearsal space for bleachers in the school’s gym while being socially distant. It has been a departure from other programs in the area, which have either been 100 percent virtual or have only been able to rehearse with small groups. Algoma band director Jennifer Massey has even figured out a way to turn those rehearsals into performance. With a recording device and a couple of clicks of a mouse, Massey has been able to turn rehearsals into virtual concerts. In addition to showing the community and parents what they have been working on, she says it is good to have goals for the kids.

Massey is currently recording the selections for their annual Christmas concert before distributing that to parents. The radio stations of will also air the concert in the week leading up to Christmas.
