Its another week of learning and getting better! This past week the musicians completed the show's drill; our prop team completed our 2 moving stages and our color guard got fitting into their show costumes. We can't wait to hit the competition field this upcoming week!
Thank you to all of our incredible band parents who worked so hard preparing and working the concession stand. So many hands make that operation a success. Thank you to all who have contributed your time & efforts.
This week we head out into competition and we will be ready! This week we will be working on making our show shine brighter. We work to stand a little taller. Play our music with more confidence. Spin our equipment with more strength and control. Its going to be a great week.
