James E. Taylor Varsity Winter Guard Presents “Secret Crush”

From a James E. Taylor Varsity Winter Guard Press Release.

James E. Taylor HS Varsity Winter Guard is proud to present their 2020 Program “Secret Crush”.

“Does he like me? What if he says no?” 

Our program this year shows the pressures of high schoolers gaining the courage to confront our “Secret Crush” and ultimately facing that harsh rejection we experience in high school. However, with the support of our friends, the rejected ends up vindicated. Set to the music of Sigrid, our 2020 program goes through the emotions of high school heartbreak and vulnerability we experienced as young adults. 

James E. Taylor HS Varsity Winter Guard is under the direction of Thomas Eggleston- Wooldridge. Show design is by Michael O’Neil, with staging design by Jacob Kalemba. The group’s 2019 choreography and technical staff includes Kahjae Pickett, Gabrielle Vita, Michael O’Neil, Jacob Kalemba, and Angie Mayhue. 

Uniform design is by Tommy Keenum, with flags and floor designs by Travis Chiles; soundtrack engineering by Michael O’Neil; uniform construction by The Band Hall; flag constriction by Band Today; floor production by Marching Show Concepts; show graphics by Travis Chiles; and props by Luke Bolding. 

James E. Taylor HS Varsity will perform locally in the Texas Color Guard Circuit and Nationally with WGI Sport of the Arts at the WGI Houston Regional and WGI Southwest Power Regional in Denton, Texas. 

The James E. Taylor HS Winter Guard and Staff would like to thank our Band Directors: Michael Ary, Jon Cabot, and Eric Weingartner; the JET Band Boosters; James E. Taylor HS Head Principal Christopher Morgan, and Katy ISD Superintendent Kenneth Gregorski.
