Coronado Band Marches To Ireland

Eric Karr Photography

The Lubbock Coronado High School Marching Band was personally invited by the Lord Mayor of Dublin to march in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland!  How exciting to have one of our local schools representing the city of Lubbock in Ireland!  In December of 2012, Coronado Assistant Band Director, Josh Shaw, received an invitation from The Lord Mayor of Dublin inviting the Coronado High School Marching Band to march in the 2014 St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland.  Of course to get to Ireland, the band students are furiously raising money to fund their trip.  Not only do they have to pay for their travel, but they need to pay to have their instruments shipped to Ireland in advance!  Here’s one way you can help…

This Friday, November 22nd at 6:30pm, The Coronado Marching Band has put together a fundraising concert staring Moonlight Social – a country band out of Austin, TX.  This show will be at the CHS Auditorium and tickets are only $10.  $5 of each ticket sold will go to the students to fund their travel and the other $5 will go to the shipping of the instruments.

Who is Moonlight Social?  They describe their sound as a mix of country married with electric guitar.  The band is made up of Jeremy Burchard and Jennica Scott.  Burchard is a Coronado Alum who was section leader in the CHS band his Senior year.  He went on to UT where he and Scott met.  She was a trumpet player in the UT band and he was a percussionist.  They began writing together and put together the group Moonlight Social.  They finished touring the Midwest this Summer and CHS Band director Josh Shaw contacted Jeremy to see if they would be willing to come and play for us. He jumped on the opportunity to help!

If you would like to support Lubbock Coronado High School Marching Band and help fund their exciting trip to Ireland AND see a great concert – contact Josh Shaw at JoshuaShaw@lubbockisd.org or by calling 806-766-0636 to purchase a ticket.
