Just a clarification to this story. The summer training session for the incoming freshmen did happen this week as scheduled. In the absence of a band director, many thanks go to Mr. Cook, the drum majors and section leaders who stepped in and put on four days of superb training. Congratulations to a group of hard working, talented freshmen. We are excited to have you joining the Marching Knights. It's going to be a great year!

What happened that made her either want to quit or be "forced" to resign?

Maybe they can get the former CHS choir director to come back and run both. He should be out of jail by now...

The Charlottesville City Scool System can go to hell. I was a member of the band during the tornello era, and i had the chance to work with ms leonard during the month of August, and part of September. She was a great director those students had a good time with her, and wanted to play. She bought something new to this program, something that those teens needed. Someone that wasn't the far away in age from them so that they could bring out their creativity. But now we can blame Charlottesville City Schools for taking that away. Im sorry to say that i was a student with that sorry excuse of a school system. you really hurt those kids good job.
