The Cougar Musicians took a field trip to the Montesa at Gold Canyon community in Gold Canyon on Dec. 7.
The Cactus Canyon musicians were given the opportunity to play out in public once again. In October, they gave the audience a treat at the state fair and in November they marched in the Veterans day parade.
“It’s so much fun!” said eighth grade band musician Lanae Wilson. “I have played trumpet for three years, and I love it!”
The Cougars have had this trip planned for several months.
“Montesa contacted me in August, so we have been planning it since the beginning of the school year,” said teacher Aimee Vining. “It’s good for us to perform in the community wherever we can. It’s a great opportunity for the community to hear the musicians from our school.”
