Same P.C. pride at a different place
June 13, 2019 at 6:52 a.m.
Port Chester High School senior drum major Savannah Langenbach conducts as the Pride of Port Chester plays their final notes of the “Alma del Bailador” show for the last time. All Port Chester School District bands and cheer teams celebrated the end of the year during the annual Band Night showcase on Tuesday, June 4, which took place at Purchase College for the first time.
Park Avenue School first-grader Gianna Carpenteri boisterously giggles at her unpictured friends during the cheerleader warmups.
Surf’s up! As the King Street School spirit team does their routine to the song “Wipe Out,” they surround third-graders Dominick Becerra (left) and Emanuel Gonzalez who pretend to be surfing as the lion mascots.
Fronting two lines of Kennedy School cheerleaders doing their routine to a ’90s throwback mix, first-grader Camila Juarez (right) looks to confident first-grader Keily Arroyo for reassurance.
Second-grader Jaimy Pulla shines high with a huge grin as her fellow cheerleaders lift her up at the end of the Edison School spirit team routine.
As the Park Avenue School band enters the field playing their school song, fifth-grade flutist Domenica Pryzyslak leads her line of fellow musicians.
Edison School drummers face the audience and a press box painted with the letters PC. Though Band Night was moved from the Port Chester High School football field to Purchase College, there were still plenty of “PC” symbols to be enjoyed.
As sixth-grader Marcos Barajas plays “Come Go with Me,” his reflection in the baritone horn stares right back at him.
A leg injury doesn’t stop seventh-grader Orhan Eski from joining his Port Chester Middle School bandmates on the Purchase College field with his saxophone.
Centered on the field in the middle of the Pride of Port Chester show, Edzani Kelapile plays a solo on his baritone. Right after the performance, the high school junior was officially honored as the 2019-20 school year band vice president.
With a suave strut, Edison School second-grader Jason Rivera walks onto the football field to perform in the spirit squad’s end of the year show.
After the elementary school bands mix for their grand performance together, JFK School fourth-grader Faith Adamson beats her snare on the edge of the drumline.
With eyes fastened to the sheet music on her lyre, King Street School fourth-grader Marisa Rachiele puffs her cheeks to play the right toots on her trombone.
Port Chester Middle School sixth-grader Elizabeth Magana bites her lip as she plays the marimba on the sidelines.
On the right side of the field, high school freshman color guard member Angelia Fallanca tosses her flag in the air during the final “Alma del Bailador” show.
