“Dreaming in Color” places in the Lincoln-Way Band Invitational

Congratulations! Performing their program "Dreaming in Color", featuring music from Piazzolla and Coldplay, the band competed in the Lincoln-Way Marching Band Invitational. With great scores competing with 11 marching bands, the band placed 9th, colorguard 8th, and drumline 4th. "Going up against bands known as Bands of America who are well founded and have sponsors from various well-known businesses, overwhelmed me and made me feel like we wouldn't win. Earning higher scores than more than half of them and placing well was a great way to end my senior year marching band season," senior section leader Ivan Sanchez said.
