The Band of Marauders coped well with the unusually warm weather--for September, that is--at the Lawrence Central Marching Band Invitational yesterday. It placed 4th in Open Class B for its performance of "The Knight," missing 3rd by .1 point. The color guard placed 2nd.
Mr. Ellinger was pleased with the performance. "The band displayed good efforts at Lawrence Central, adding a little more to our show's length while also 'filling in' a great deal of choreography of what we already know," he said. "We were excited to place 2nd in color guard and were excited to be only .1 away from 3rd place.
"In this activity, a margin of .1 is extremely close!"
The band's next performance--assuming we don't have rain--will be this Friday at the Mt. Vernon vs. Pendleton Heights home football game. The band is expected to include Part III (the finale) in its performances this weekend.
The next competition for the Band of Marauders will be this Saturday at the Greenwood Marching Invitational. The time of the band's performance will be announced on Twitter (@BandofMarauders) and on the Band of Marauders Social Page on Facebook. #GOMARAUDERS!
