A letter from our friends in Whitesboro!
Posted: November 7, 2015
To Mr. Flock and the ESM Marching Band,
Last night at the Carrier Dome I was leading the Whitesboro Pep Band- a volunteer group of middle school and high school students who just love to play music. We typically only play at our home games, and in the last 2 years have not been at a game with another band, much less one of your caliber.
We had a BLAST playing across the field from you. Our students really enjoyed your sound from the bleachers and from the field. Our school does not have a field band or anything close to one, so the whole experience of watching and listening was really electric. My students faces lit up when they saw the drum line, heard the cadences, the big full chords... the things a director can appreciate, too.
Anyway, I just wanted to drop a note and thank you for being such a good model of sportsmanship and musicianship. It was enjoyable for all of us to play across from you. Congratulations on your recent successes in the NYSFBC Championships and I wish you years of continued success.

The Spartan Marching Band is the Small School 1 State Champions! Congratulations to the students and staff on a great year! The boosters and parents are so proud of your accomplishment! Go Spartans!
The East Syracuse Minoa Spartan Marching Band, High School and Middle School Winter Guards and Winter Percussion Ensemble consists of students in grades 6 through 12. The program's existence enables members to become better performers and experience the benefits of hard work, dedication, and perseverance. It is the responsibility of each member to work diligently toward raising the ensembles level of excellence. To achieve this goal, ensemble members are expected to participate in activities to the fullest degree and make the most of every rehearsal moment. Participation in the activities that help foster and support the organization is also a rewarding experience. Achieving these goals has allowed all of the ESM Marching Ensembles to enjoy a rich and proud history.
