Al Paulson, director of bands at Fort Dodge Senior High, said he had 18 students in the band Saturday, a new record for the school.
He said the students gain some valuable experience by playing with new musicians and under a new director. "They get a new perspective from other directors and making music with a band they've never met before," he said. Paulson planned on being in attendance, he was expected to wear something special as he listened to the music. "A big smile," he said.

Al Paulson, director of bands at Fort Dodge Senior High, was proud of his band's performance Saturday.
"They were awesome," he said, "I was very proud of them." He said that of the 136 members in this year's band, 75 are freshmen and sophomores. It's a young group. "I feel really good about where we are," he said. Paulson was quick to credit those who help the band. Parents in particular are an important part of their success, he said. "If it wasn't for the parents the kids wouldn't be here," he said. That support includes the band's booster club. He said they donated $30,000 toward the purchase of the band's new uniforms that they are marching in this year. He said they've helped keep the band looking sharp. "I love them; it's a great look," Paulson said.

"This is the eleventh year for this event," said Al Paulson, Fort Dodge Senior High Band Director.
"There are few contests in the Midwest that offer this type of festival that includes the clinic. It makes the event very educational and fun for the students involved." The invitational gives bands the chance to brush up their performances prior to the Iowa High School Music Association's State Marching Band Competition on October 11. According to Paulson, the Invitational is a place for the bands to get constructive feedback from some of the top marching band instructors in the Midwest as they prepare for the state competition. "The clinic and competition give the bands the opportunity to dig into their performance and identify places to improve upon before the state competition," stated Paulson "The kids put a lot of time and energy into their performances and want to do the best that they can."

"Many of the kids here have never seen the ocean," said Al Paulson, band director at Fort Dodge, prior to leaving for the trip.
"I think it's going to be great to see the Iowa band, and it gives our band a chance to see them in action and cheer for them," Paulson said. "The snow has definitely made it hard with our drill and parade preparation," said Paulson.
