Richardson twins

Olathe Northwest bands put in more work than meets the eye. Morning rehearsals during the fall, parades and competitions are busy enough on top of performing at games. Jordan and Jarrett Richardson, seniors at Northwest, have spent many hours putting in hard work.

Jordan Richardson has taken on the role of drum major this year. Standing on the podium and conducting the band has just been another way he helps out with the band. Jordan also plays the trumpet, contributing in a different way.

Jarrett Richardson leads the drum-line. By leading his section he helps the band and his own brother when he’s conducting. Jarrett also has played percussion in symphonic orchestra performances.

Both brothers plan to keep music in their lives in different ways as the graduate and go into college.
