• Recap - Downtown Madera Candlelight Christmas Parade
     
    All three middle school bands and both high school bands participated in the City of Madera's Downtown Candlelight Christmas parade on Thursday, Dec. 2. Hundreds of community members and elected officials took to the streets of the downtown area to enjoy the fun and festivities.
     
    Here is a recap of the event, courtesy the omnipresent Allan Kristensen, Madera Unified's K-12 Music Coordinator.
     
    "What a great job by the five band directors -- Jon, Bret, Tim, Johnelle and Irene. The parade was wonderful, and it looked like all of the band members were having a great time."
     
    "I sat near people (families and friends) that seemed to be there only to see the bands. They were 'checking off' each band as they came by, and didn’t show loyalty to any specific one. And they cheered for you all -- loudly! It was very cool."
     
    "Best of luck to all of you at your winter concerts."
