WHS Marching Band Attends Band Camp

The 2019 WHS Hornet Marching Band just completed a week of marching band camp at Camp Kimball in Reading, Michigan.  This is the fourteenth year that WHS held their camp at Camp Kimball.  Throughout the week 75 members of the band worked on marching fundamentals, music rehearsal, and team-building exercises.  While at camp the group puts in about 40 hours of rehearsal time.  All of this is done in preparation for the band’s performances at the Friday night Williamston varsity football games. 

Williamston High School Band Director Lynn Kelsey was assisted at camp with an instructional staff consisting of music majors and marching band members from Eastern Michigan University and Michigan State University. This year’s staff included Williamston High School alumni; Allie Pail, Emma Sturm and JoAnn Wheeler.  The week concluded with a parent “informance” at the camp where the band performed parade marching, pre-game and halftime routines for their families.
