School bands on parade

Bands from Hawaii's public and private schools will perform in the Oahu Band Directors' Association annual Parade of Concert Bands this week. The bands will each be evaluated by visiting music adjudicators Frances McBeth and Barbara Prentice-Lambrecht.

The bands play 1:30- 10 p.m. Thursday at McKinley High School auditorium, and 1:15 to 9 p.m. Friday and 8:05 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday at Pearl City Cultural Center. Admission is $3 per day. The best way to find out what time specific bands are playing is to call the respective schools.

In addition, the OBDA select bands will be featured in concerts at McKinley High School Auditorium. The High School and Ninth Grade select bands, conducted by the adjudicators, will perform April 29. The Select Jazz Band, led by Dominic Spera of Indiana University, and the Eighth Grade Select Band and Seventh Grade Honor Band take the stage May 6. Both concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 for each concert. Call 944-5748 for more information.
