ADDISON - A former student will be behind the music stand directing band members at the beginning of the school year on Wednesday, August 7. Garrett McCurley, Addison class of 2013 graduate, was hired as the new band director at Addison effective Tuesday, June 11. McCurley has been fine-tuning the band program consisting of 21 musicians, nine of which are percussion-related.
McCurley was also in band, playing percussion during his high school days and was the band captain as well.
“Our playing size is not really up to what it should be,” McCurley said. “I’m trying to come in and build this band up, trying to do some recruiting and getting it back to where it used to be when I remember it.”
