Silver Knights Marching Band Set to Perform
The Tyler Consolidated Silver Knights Marching Band will be performing at the Sistersville Christmas Parade on Friday, Dec. 1 and will follow that performance at the Middlebourne Christmas Parade on Saturday, Dec. 2. The Sistersville Parade is scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm while the Middlebourne Christmas Parade is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. There is also a TCMS Christmas Concert scheduled for Dec. 14 beginning at 7:30 pm and a TCHS Christmas Concert scheduled for Dec. 18 also beginning at 7:30 pm. A Solo and Ensemble concert will be held at West Liberty on Jan. 27.
The Knights Marching Band will also be holding an upcoming fundraiser for the purchase of new uniforms but the date has not yet been determined. The band is increasing in numbers and soon there will be more band members than uniforms.
The TCHS band will unveil their new uniforms in 2019. The Knights Band would like to order 70 uniforms and each uniform costs approximately $575, which includes pants, jacket, hat, plume and gauntlets.
Those wishing to contribute to the uniform funds may send private donations to: Tyler Consolidated High School, 1993 Silver Knights Drive, Sistersville, WV 26175 – Attention: Matt Jennings. Director Matt Jennings would like to thank all of the community for their support and hopes to see a great supporting crowd at the upcoming parades and concerts.
Director Matt Jennings wishes to thank TCHS English teacher and Knights Band staff member Maggie Fisher for creating a promotional flier for the new uniform. He also greatly appreciates the help of company who will manufacture the uniform, DeMoulin and their West Virginia representative Elaine Kerr of Kerr’s Music World in Charleston for their assistance with the design and for providing the Knights Band with a uniform sample.
