Concert band worked hard on learning the Oxford High School Fight Song...about 3 ten minute practice sessions. Ms. Gronda said "They approached it with the same energy, focus and attention to detail as if they were preparing for a State Festival performance. I heard them using practice techniques we use in class and applying them to learning this song in a short amount of time. I know it is a little rough but the message and love behind it is "perfection". I am so proud of my students...for taking on this project and for the dedication, details, and focus they displayed."
