In June, Parker Middle School Band Program was awarded a generous grant from Music Drives Us. These funds allowed the Parker Band to fully outfit the percussion section. Equipment that had been purchased 40 years ago has now been replaced, including three new Ludwig Timpani as well as a new Tama concert bass drum, in addition to a 4.3 Octave Adams Marimba, which is a new instrument for the Parker Band. These instruments were delivered this fall, and are now in use by the members of the Parker percussion section.
