Patty Wood/The Reporter Every year the Walton Central high school band and orchestra students perform a recruitment concert at Townsend Elementary School for the third, fourth and fifth grade students. The purpose of the concert is to show the younger students the instruments and give them a lesson on how they fit into the orchestra or band. Mr. Ray Bartlett gives the younger students a history of the instrument and demonstrates how to “buzz” their lips to produce the range of sounds each instrument makes. The event encourages students to start lessons in elementary school to helps prepare them for their high school ensemble experience.
