Farewell Vanguard class of 2023!

Evelyn Garcia, Reporter


On May 9, 2023 Vanguard performed our last concert of the year along with the Loggers Run Middle School band who performed with us in our finale. Before we began preparing for the concert, seniors gave speeches on what their experience was like joining the band. Afterwards we rehearsed and began setting up for our performance. In the concert, Percussion, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic band, and concert band all performed.  On May 16, 2023 Vanguard played at the West Boca Raton high school graduation ceremony for class of 2023, where we said goodbye to our senior band class of 2023.
