He's been on the job for a few months and he's had plenty of work to stay busy.  Just in case you haven't yet had the chance to get properly introduced, Mr. Nick Remesz, the new Director of the legendary band program at Durand, took the time to answer some questions for us, about himself, his background and his vision for Durand's future.

The 2017-2018 band is off to an exciting start, taking first place in Flight IV at their first contest, the Novi Invitational, last weekend.  The Durand Marching Railroaders received a score of 80.525 as well as awards for Outstanding Music and Outstanding Visuals.

The Durand band traveled to Troy-Athens High School for the Troy-Athens Invitational over the weekend and marched away in first place, sweeping all caption awards.  Mr. Remesz said the band did "a great job," receiving a score of 84.05.  He also noted that the band is ranked 5th in Flight IV ahead of the state contest.  The championship average scores ("CAS") averages bands' two best scores to create a rank order ahead of the state championship event.

Durand has one last regular season competition before the state contest.  The band will travel to Reeths-Puffer Invitational at Rockford High School on Saturday.
