For the first time in school history, the Hialeah Miami Lakes High marching band will perform with local middle school bands in an effort to recruit the students to attend the high school and march with the Trojans.

The marching bands from Miami Lakes and Palm Springs Middle schools and Miami Lakes K-8 Center will perform with the Trojans marching band at Concert Under the Stars, which is scheduled for 6 p.m., Friday, April 13, at 7977 West 12 Avenue.  

HML band director Kevin Segura said he created the event to give middle school students an opportunity to play with his band in hopes of convincing them to join one of the top ten marching bands in the state. 

“I think this is a great recruitment tool for the middle school students to meet and play with our marching band,” said Segura, who’s percussion section finished third overall in the state competition this year. “Our students are the best recruiters who can tell the kids this band is awesome and this is a good school to attend.”

The event is $5 for admission with free food and drinks served to participants.

Segura, who plays the French horn, said he anticipates about 300 people to be on hand to watch his band and about 100 middle school students perform.

He said his students are serious about their top ten ranking and among the best bands in the state.

“They are very passionate and are like a big family,” Segura said.
