In a show of teamwork the FPCHS and MHS bands took the field to play the National Anthem together on August 25th at the FPCHS vs. MHS football game.

The rival bands enjoyed making music together and sharing the spotlight of the large crowd.  The logistics of the endeavor had to be considered and planned by our Flagler County Schools band directors;  Adam McIntyre,(MHS) , Jared Allen, (MHS) John Seth (FPCHS) and Ryan Schulz  (FPCHS)  but the team worked together to hold a rehearsal in the gym before the game; organizing students by instrument.  The band directors had a special challenge in finding an arrangement that could be used with such a large group of students. They decided on an arrangement written for the 1984 olympics. Both bands were required to learn a new arrangement and shared in the learning opportunity.
