The Advanced band is preforming four pieces as well as the Intermediate band. One of the four will be sight-reading. The other pieces that are being performed is the Third Suite, Free Lance March, and Perseus.

Jared Coyle, freshman and a trombone player in the intermediate band, says “to be completely honest, I am not really that nervous about the contest because I know that we will walk out with a gold.”

David Lopez, sophomore, and  a trombone player in the advanced band, says “I know that we will do great and come home with gold ratings.”

Mr. Wing and Mr. Basso has announced that the Intermediate band has gotten a gold rating on both the concert and in sight reading on April 7.
