December 15, 2008

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - In mid-November, the Spring-Ford Senior High School Golden Ram Marching Band successfully defended its 2006 and 2007 Tournament of Bands - Atlantic Coast Group IV state and regional championship.

Under the direction of former Clear Spring High School band director John E. Eckstine Jr., the band has been selected to perform at the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association annual state convention in Valley Forge, Pa., in April.

Eckstine, who also taught band programs at Williamsport and Boonsboro high schools, has been teaching at Spring-Ford Area High School in Royersford, Pa., for nine years.

The band also won awards for high brass, high woodwinds, high music and high visuals, placing first over 15 competing bands from a nine-state region in the November competition.
