By 8 p.m. Tuesday night, von der Mehden Recital Hall was almost full of parents and students alike coming out to support the symphonic band in one of their last shows of the semester. With the brightly-lit stage filled to the very edge with stands, chairs and a variety of key and percussion instruments, the small auditorium was bustling, with chatter between the audience members, background echoes of warm up scales and tuning notes as the band prepared back stage.
