Band delights at Disneyland

— image credit:


The Sequim High School Band marches down Disneyland’s Main Street before thousands of spectators  on March 22. The band returned from the national Heritage Music Festival in Anaheim, Calif., with honors: silver awards for both the Jazz and Percussion ensembles; bronze for Concert Band and Wind Ensemble; a special auxiliary award for the Flag Team; and an adjudicator’s award for saxophone soloist Hillary Smith. The trip went smoothly although airline mechanical problems caused the band to wait for more than eight hours in the airport before some were shuttled to another airline,

leaving 63 students and chaperones to return home the
following night.
Airport staff complimented the group’s exemplary behavior.
The band performs May 11 at the Irrigation Festival Parade and gives a free summer concert at 7 p.m. June 11 at the high school auditorium.
