An Odd Looking Band Camp at TCHS

Typically every year during the last two weeks of July, the Toombs County High School Redcoat Marching band holds their annual band camp. That consists of two straight weeks starting at 8am and last until 4pm of nothing but music and marching. However, this year things are very different. The band has yet to even meet as a full band because of social distancing and guidelines set up by the GMEA (Georgia Music Educators Association). This year I talked with band director – Noah Bullard, assistant band director/middle school band director – Micah Caldwell, and drum major – Makenzie Sager. We discussed how band camp would look this year with all the changes brought on by the dreaded COVID-19 virus.
