Band Heads Out on Tour

Many Central Methodist University students are heading out of town at the end of the week as the school takes a spring recess, but the members of the Central concert band are hitting the road for a different reason. Under the direction of conductor Skip Vandelicht, the band is going back on tour, with stops at five regional high schools on the itinerary.

The band is scheduled to head out on Thursday for a 2 p.m. performance at Westran High School, followed by a noon show at New Franklin High School on Friday. On Monday, the band will visit Glasgow High School for an 8 a.m. performance, and the tour will conclude with two shows on Tuesday, at Fulton High School at 8:15 a.m. and Sullivan High School at 1 p.m.
