Marching Giants off to best start in years

Posted on Sep. 26 2016 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Last week, on Sept. 17, the Marching Giants started their season by competing in the Brownsburg Invitational, where they finished in 4th place and had their highest first weekend score since returning to competitive marching band.

Saturday, Sept. 24, was a busy day for the band as they performed in the James Dean Parade in Fairmount, then traveled to East Noble for a competition. In between, some of the members entertained attendees at the MHS Hall of Distinction Induction Banquet with the MHS Jazz Band.

At the East Noble contest, the Marching Giants performed their baseball-themed show, “Batter Up”, earning 3rd place and improving their score by more than 6 points from the first weekend! This is the first time since returning to competition that the band has improved their score from week 1 to week 2 — a GIANT step in the right direction!

This coming weekend, the band travels to Homestead High School in Fort Wayne for the Homestead Fall Festival of Bands Invitational on Saturday, Oct. 1. Dozens of MHS students compete with the Marching Giants, as do two McCulloch Junior High students this year. These young musicians continue to represent Marion with the same class and pride that we all expect our students to display. We perform at 3:15 p.m., and we invite YOU to come out and support the band, and arts education here at Marion Community Schools!
