Socastee High School selling bricks to build band funding

What happens to kids with music in their souls when they are not allowed to play that music in public? How do band members feel on those nights when the excitement of a football game fills the air, blending with the music from the band on the other side of the bleachers -- but no music is coming from their side, and their nice, neat uniforms are at home, hanging in their closets? Can you see their hands begin a drumbeat on their knees? Their lips tighten as if their clarinets, trombones, saxophones and other woodwinds were soon going to join with the music inside them and help spur their team to victory. Music, the thing that makes them who they are.
