From ULS Band Director Ira Wong:
The COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be devastating to many performing arts organizations around the world. For the ULS Band program, we haven’t had an in-person class meeting since March of 2020 and just finished a full year of once-a-week online classes on Google Meet last month.
This video project will be the only evidence of any music-making by my high school students this year. Regardless, it was a challenge and great learning experience for all of us. Special thanks to sound engineer Mark Yap, video editor Jaren Vallesteros, and alumni guest artist, Travis Oh (ULS, Class of 2004). Enjoy and let’s hope next school year is closer to what we all recognize as “normal.” Oh, and a extra special shout-out to my daughter, Danika, for her assistance on the project.
