When she was little, she saw her grandfather’s trumpet and just knew that it was the instrument for her. Mary McIntire is now first chair in the freshman band. She started band in fifth grade and has been playing ever since. She has been in honor band, marching band, and is a third generation trumpet player in her family.

McIntire said she is grateful for band because she has met so many friends through it and on the first day of school she knew faces and wasn’t alone. “You make friendships that last all four years.” McIntire said.

McIntire hopes in the future that she can be in the University of Minnesota marching band even though she doesn’t want to major in band.
