High School Pep Band Accordionist

Maybe I’m just nostalgic about my marching band days, but I’m a sucker for this story about a girl who’s playing accordion in her high school pep band. Shandra Korbelik, 16, of Exeter-Milligan High School in Exeter, Nebraska, has been sitting in with the woodwinds and belting out “classics” like “Eye of the Tiger” and “Hawaii Five-O” on her button accordion. It sounds like she’s having a blast, and I love her description of picking up her current, rhinestone-studded accordion:

“It was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’ve got heaven in my arms.'”

Do you know of any proud pep/marching band accordionists in your area? Let us know and we’ll give ’em the attention they deserve.
