Genoa, AR – The Genoa Dragon Band performed their Spring Concert this evening in front of a packed Genoa Gym. Parents, grandparents, and friends came out to support the Dragon Band as each group performed three musical numbers each.
Mr. Gray is completing his first year as band director. Retired Band Director Joe DuPas was on site this evening for the concert. At one point, those in the crowd paying attention to DuPas, would have seen him smiling and giving the “thumbs up” to Mr. Gray at the completion of one of the songs. It was very apparent to anyone that Mr. DuPas has left the band in great hands and that he is proud of the work Gray is continuing with students.
Mr. Gray acknowledged high school seniors and several members of the advanced band for various awards and recognition throughout the year. Both the Beginner and the Advanced Band performed outstanding this evening. The Advanced Band closed out their final number for the 2017-2018 school year and received a standing ovation from the packed crowd. One thing is for certain, for the 2018-2019 school year Mr. Gray and his band kids should see nothing less than continued improvements and triumphs as a performing group from the four states region.
