Football games are not the only time marching band puts on their uniforms, uniforms also come off the hangers for competitions. Competition season starts with the Vista Ridge Marching Contest coming up this Sat., Oct. 4, with band walking on the field at 4 p.m. Band members are looking forward to performing their new show among schools like Johnson and Clark in New Braunfels.
“[I am] really excited,” freshman Sofia Ostrowski said. “[We are] small, but we sound good.”
The band has not competed in this show since 2012, but they will be entering this year with a new show and high hopes.
“[The new show] is called Cosmic Proportions, so it’s about space,” senior Nicole Vaynberg said. “[Our strong points this year] are color guard, trumpet solos, and the percussion section.”
The buses will transport students to the competition at 2:30 p.m., where they will strive to win first out of the schools attending. Results will be received Mon., Oct. 6.
