Congratulations to all the members of the Silver Sound for a tremendous marching band competition season!
As you know, this was the first year that the marching ensemble has participated in any form of competition. With that said, participating in three contests was a tall order for this “inaugural” season. The band performed very well each time earning class championships in every one of the three contests, including the Grand Championship at it’s very first competition – the Edisto “Blue Machine” Invitational. Congratulations to the entire band, but especially the senior class. A big “Thank You” to everyone that made the season success, including members of the pit crew, chaperones, water crew, uniform crew, nurses, and everyone else behind the scenes. Special thanks to Lesley Babington, and the booster board for their leadership, Mr. Miller for your vision, and to the staff for their hard work.
The competitive part of the marching band season may have concluded for this year, however, the Silver Sound will perform it’s competitive show “PUSH: Persist Until Something Happens” at least one more time, at the band’s Command Performance scheduled for Thursday, November 2nd at 7pm.
The next big upcoming event is on Tuesday, October 24th when the combined Wind Ensemble (all band members) will present a Fall Concert at 7pm in the MRHS Auditorium. The May River HS Band Department will also host the Lowcountry Community Concert Band from the OLLI at the University of South Carolina Beaufort for it’s concert presentation “Fall Fanfare” immediately following the performance of the MRHS Wind Ensemble that evening.
There are no band events this week, however, students should be working hard at home practicing their All-Region music. Auditions for All-County are in December. All-Region auditions are in January. More information to follow.
Have a great remainder to your week, and a fantastic weekend!
