2020 HAYS FIELD SHOW
Change is never easy. As human-beings, many of us fear what we don't know. With this new school year comes a lot of change both in our society and within the walls of Hays High School. For some, our biggest life change is only a year away as we begin planning our journeys past high school.
Many of us may see these changes as obstacles. Well...sometimes life gives you obstacles. Obstacles that may seem unfair or too extreme. But you are given choices. Break through the obstacles or let the obstacles break you. As a community of scholars and musicians, we want one thing to be clear. Our dedication to musical and visual performance will never settle, regardless of the obstacles thrown our way. We are resilient and this too shall pass.
"Moving Forward" is a show that is dedicated to this years senior class. This is a group of seniors that have overcome so many obstacles and so many changes throughout their time here at Hays. While none of us may have expected their senior year to be altered by a global pandemic , we do know that regardless of situation we are going to come together as a band - now more than ever to ensure a year that is unique and memorable.
We often talk about "leaving a legacy" in the Hays Band program. Your legacy is defined by your actions and your actions speak a million words. "Moving Forward" is about our students defining a new standard for the Hays Band program and leaving a legacy that will continue to strengthen the foundations of this very program. Legacy is not leaving something for people. It’s leaving something in people.
Together, we will make wonderful memories through this production. We will focus on the fundamental elements of band and music making and enjoy every single second spent together. We will demolish the bridges behind us and look to the future so that there is no choice but to "MOVE FORWARD".
We will walk together through the unknown, for if everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.
