The June 3, 7:30 p.m. North Branch Area Middle School concert will be one of teacher Dave Enyart’s last as band teacher before his retirement, and it will be all the more special due to a gesture by a parent.

Vince Hendren, parent of an 8th grade student, and former band teacher, has written a special composition, the “Viking March,” meant to honor Enyart. The eighth grade band will perform the march at the high school’s Edelstein Auditorium.

“I am deeply honored that Vince chose to dedicate an original composition to me,” Enyart said. “I am looking forward, along with the members of Band 8, to performing the premier of the march. We hope that we can meet Vince’s intentions and expectations for his march. This is really cool … many thanks to Vince.”
