Itinerary for Week of September 17, 2018 – BLACKSTONE US Bands show

This week’s itinerary can be found by clicking this link. It will also be emailed out to all band & guard families shortly. 

Please note two things for this week:

  1. Thursday’s rehearsal time has been CHANGED due to Open House at DHS. 
  2. This week’s show is actually in Medway, not in Blackstone. The address on the itinerary and in the online Google Calendar is correct.

We are excited for our first competition this weekend!

US Bands Group V Open National Champions!!

Congratulations to our marching band and color guard for scoring 98.350 at MetLife Stadium this weekend, making them back-to-back Group V Open National Champions!

The band swept all caption awards, which include:

  • Music Performance 
  • Visual Performance 
  • Overall Effect 
  • Color Guard 
  • Percussion 

This is an amazing achievement, and credit to every single student in the program for the hard work and dedication they’ve shown since the first day of band camp back in the summer.

After achieving the highest score out of the entire competition, the kids enjoyed a day in New York, which included stops at the Statue of Liberty, 9/11 Memorial, and Times Square before returning home, accompanied by an escort from the Dartmouth Police and Fire Departments. 

The band staff has noted time and again how amazing this group of performers has been all season. All of their efforts have paid off with their back-to-back national wins.
