Sabrina Furio is a leader in Hollywood Hills High School’s marching band. She is the drum major in addition to playing the saxophone and bass clarinet.

Hollywood Hills marching band drum major Sabrina Furio stands with band director Jeffrey Lawson, who hopes the Spartans can earn superior scores in October. 

“I love music and performing it. Being part of the band is fun and we all get along well,” Furio said.

Band director Jeffrey Lawson is excited about this year’s marching band, which has about 60 members. “I want to get straight superior scores at the Florida Band Association (FBA) assessment in October,” he said.

Rhea West is the band officer in charge of uniforms and says she also enjoys performing music. She plays trombone, baritone and percussion.

Dani Griffin, a trumpet player is the band captain. “We are like a big family,” she said.
