The Scotia Band visited local area schools for a musical celebration. Pictured is the Scotia Band led by Jill Petricca with Redwood Prep band students joining in the performance. Petricca also teaches band after school to Redwood Prep students. The Scotia Band was formed in 1935 and played for the first time at Redwood Prep this past week. The band began their musical triumph with fan faire, but the highlight was the performance of Sponge Bob Square Pants where an all ages sing along broke out. The Scotia Band can be found at most annual events in Fortuna performing with all their hearts and showing their deep love for music.
