Band from Moore, Oklahoma practices in Joplin, shares advice with JHS band

Updated:

Band students in Joplin and Moore, Oklahoma  have both survived deadly tornadoes.  And that resolve brings even more significance to one band's success in competition. 

Joplin welcomed the Southmoore high school  band to Junge field where the JHS band usually practices.  Southmoore stopped in Joplin for a practice as it heads  to Indianapolis for the grand national championships.  The 204 members arrived before school hours  in Joplin  on three  busses,  unloaded a semi full of equipment, and  did drills with Joplin high band members watching.   
Band directors say all understand the dedication it takes to perform as an ensemble. 

Addison Womack, a Southmoore senior says,"We got hit by the storm last year,  really its kind of a success story to see how a program  can get impacted  by a natural disaster  and still persevere and work through it."

Marching band requires precision and teamwork on the field but those are just a few of the skills instructors say will pay off for the students later in life.

Southmoore band director Adam Mewhorter says, "Mainly time management skills is what   they get from this learning to work hard work as a team and  especially dealing with all kinds of  personalities,  as we do in life. You get to meet a lot of them in band."
