On July 10, in a ceremony honoring visiting Japanese dignitaries, Junipero Serra High School provided the musical background in a rousing performance led by Manton Daley, the Director of the Junipero Serra High School Drumline, and his group.
On hand for the event was Katrina Smith, the Assistant Director of Development. "Despite a few logistical issues, the event went well. Our group seemed to be the most polished, and the guests seemed to be caught off-guard, many stopping to watch our group," said Smith.
The group played five booming sets as they greeted the dignitaries. "All of the city officials were excited to see and hear the Drumline. Some of the parents came to watch and film. We had a great time," Smith added.
