“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” ~Plato
The 2017 Marching Band season was full of hard work, big victories, and loads of fun times. We practiced and performed in crazy weather including snow, wind, rain and below freezing temperatures. Our awards case has numerous new plaques and trophies including the State 2A 2nd Place trophy! We are so incredibly proud of all we have accomplished this season!
Many thanks to our staff Rob Even, Abe Eng, Jason Shin, Alexandra Munoz, Jeff DesMarteau and James Lesley. We’d also like to thank our lead parent volunteers Rene and Mike Beck, Elaine Morin, and Aaron Peterson as well as the numerous other parent volunteers. Thank you to our fellow students and parents who supported us!
