HMK eNews > Champs Week, Part 1 :)
Post date: Oct 21, 2014 5:55:14 PM
IT’S CHAMPS WEEK!
This Saturday, we head to West Chester University to compete for the USBands Pennsylvania State Championship!
> Unlike Cavalcade, scores in USBands are determined by HOW WELL YOU PERFORM, not what you are asked to perform! We have been getting a LOT of credit this season for a well-designed show, however our score on Saturday is completely dependent upon the achievement of the performers.
> Nazareth is the most decorated band in USBands history. They are in our group and perform immediately after us!
> There is no “defense” in marching band, and we cannot control what the audience thinks of another band’s performance! (NOTE: Parents, judges do not score a band higher or lower depending on audience response, so show appreciation for all of the hard working students in each band by applauding at the appropriate times! Thanks!)
PA STATES TICKETS > PLEASE order pre-sale tickets for this event through the Band Booster Club! Tickets are $16 ($18 at the gate) and we need to sell 80 tickets for our “Fair Share.” Orders should be placed will be ready for pickup following Thursday night’s rehearsal. THANK YOU! :)
