The Lakewood Band Boosters are raising money to commission a composer to write a song for our band. This exciting project will bring positive publicity to our band and provide students with the unique opportunity to work with a composer. Preliminary work has begun and David Shaffer, a well-known composer for bands, has agreed to write the piece. Shaffer is currently the Director of the Miami University Marching Band. The commission fee will be $3000 and includes Mr. Shaffer traveling to Salina to work with students in class and premier the work at the February 2013 band concert. David Cooper, grant writer with USD305, is working with the band boosters to apply for grants through the Salina Education Foundation and the Greater Salina Community Foundation to cover much of the cost.
