As there are only a few weeks left of the school year, Pitman band and orchestra students made their final performances this week.
The Pitman High School marching band performed for residents at Covenant Living of Turlock on Wednesday as they celebrated the kickoff of their annual benevolent care fundraising campaign. The benevolent care funds raised go to help residents who have outlived their resources through no fault of their own and allows them to continue living at Covenant Living.
On Friday, Mariachi Orgullo de Pitman performed a small concert to introduce a mariachi program they have been working on since 2020. The mariachi band consists of musicians from the Pitman marching band and orchestra. The band played a variety of traditional mariachi songs such as "Cielito Lindo," "Hermoso Cariño" and "De Colores." Mayor Amy Bublak was in attendance with her husband and a few TUSD board members to enjoy the concert.
Directors Ruben Modesto and Morgan Machado anticipate the program will grow larger and will plan future fundraisers to help facilitate its success.
