East Ramapo High School junior Calvin Frontanilla, 17, of New City demonstrates flashy choreography with his trumpet as he marches alongside Nyack High School's marching band during their Homecoming parade at MacCalman Field in Upper Nyack. Frontanilla was a member of East Ramapo's championship marching band before school board cutbacks eliminated the program. He takes private lessons with Michael Smith, East Ramapo's former well-respected band director who was subsequently hired by the Nyack Union Free School District to lead, improve and develop the marching band program for Nyack schools. Frontanilla volunteers as a band assistant to teach the choreography, drill and moves that made East Ramapo's band famous in the community to Nyack students. (Oct. 12, 2012)
