KAYLA WADLINGTON WILL SING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM FOR THE MAY 16TH SHOWS

As usual, The Babahatchie Community Band rehearsed Monday evening for the May 16thAppalachian Dreams” stage show. On hand Monday, to practice with the band, were Sandra Copeland Hicks, representing “The Chickadees”, and Roane County High School’s Kayla Wadlington, who will open both shows with the national anthem.

Kayla plays the alto sax in the Roane County High School and RCHS Jazz bands. Kayla, a junior this year, rushed to the rehearsal just after tennis practice. She, and band director McCall Bohanan, conferred for a few minutes and then she ran through the anthem a couple of times with the band. She is the daughter of Randy and Rita Wadlington of Kingston.

Later, Kayla, her mother Rita, discuss future rehearsal and show

arrangements with Gary Baker of the Princess Foundation.

McCall Bohanan is a member of the UT Music Department, where he is pursuing a master’s degree in Music Education, and is an arranger of several works for wind and choral ensembles.

The Babahatchie Community Band was founded by Dr. Joe Williams, and he and several of his old high school classmates continue to play together today weekly. The band is a rather eclectic group with member ages ranging from pre-teens to over eighty! It’s a wonderful ensemble that enjoys playing great music together!

Remember, the evening show is “sold out”, but there are still plenty of tickets to the 2PM Matinee at the Roane State Theater. See you there!
