Transitioning from middle school band to high school band was a major jump because of all the time involved, but it was such a great transition. Since my freshman year I have always done all I can to be my absolute best in this program. I never slacked off on practice unless I had another event I had to attend. Every summer we have band camp that consists of 8 hours a day working our hardest to get the season started. Once school starts the color guard had three hour practices three times a week, last year it was only two, and now we only have practice one day a week because of the effort we all put in at band camp this year.
Taking the field the Evolution “East Peoria Marching Raiders, you may take the field in competition.” During the four years of high school, I was able to get involved with the East Peoria High School Band program. The marching band has evolved since I joined in 2011 and it has been improving each year. My freshman year we used to march trombones, I was probably the worst one on the field when it came to the marching aspect. There was a lot of foundation work being planted as I learned the terms, how to read drill, remembering counts, memorizing music, managing homework on long Tuesday night rehearsals and most importantly how to enjoy oneself in the midst of a struggle. This was just the first year!
On a hot game day in Athens Georgia where is the most likely place you can find Carine? Marching with the Redcoat band of course! Throughout High School my dream was to one-day march with the famous Redcoat Band. All I wanted was to wear the striking black hat with the arches and proudly display the Georgia G on my back. I had watched patiently as older members of my high school moved on to UGA and were indoctrinated into the finest band in the land.

After the Milan High School victory, eight teams have made it to the Final Four. These teams are Springs Valley High School in 1958, Tell City High School in 1961, Cloverdale High School in 1966, Loogootee High School in 1970 and 1975, Argos High School in 1979, Shenandoah High School in 1981, Southridge High School in 1985, and Whitko High School in 1991 (“One-Class…”). Loogootee’s 1975 team made it to championship game; but, no small, current A or 2A, school won the championship after Milan High School (Johnson). Just as state champions change each year, so does tournament attendance. In 1960, the total series attendance was 1,497,674.
Of my ultimate goals was to make one of the most exclusive bands in Nebraska. When I was selected to play in the 2015 All-State honor band, my dream transpired. Since the seventh grade I have participated in jazz band along with concert band; I now play in my high school 's most selective jazz band. Humbled by my elite group members, I accept many improvisation solos to express my ideas and find my place among

The California Restaurant Association Foundation (CRAF) hosts the annual CA ProStart Cup for California’s culinary high school students to compete in culinary and business management events.

Twice past GHS groups have placed second and the last two years they placed within the top 10. This year the group consisted of GHS seniors- Destiny Potts, Kelsey Heard, Tanner Meigs, Sidney-Lyn McIntosh, and Chainy Carson. Of the group, only McIntosh had competed the year before.
Along with the opportunity to participate in the dance program comes the lesson of discipline. The dance program requires a commitment of ninety minute practices Monday-Friday and a four hour practice every Saturday. Not only do the children learn discipline through coaching and practice, they must also keep their grades at or above a “B” average. The group began performing at festivals in the local area which gained them lots of positive recognition. In 2009, they were invited to the United States to perform in several cities in Colorado.

In 1999, we had 10 bands at the Mitchell Persimmon Festival ... for it was their 150th anniversary and they paid the bands to come).

On Wednesday, April 20th, I attended a formal concert at Webster Hall. It was Hunter College’s annual USG Spring Fling event. Last year featured a performance by Fetty Wap, a currently popular hip-hop artist. This year, Hunter students had the pleasure of watching Oxymorons, the opening acts, and Waka Flaka Flame perform. Waka Flaka Flame is a hip-hop artist active in the hip-hop scene since 2008.
I 've played flute for seven years in various Broken Arrow bands, including being in the esteemed Pride of Broken Arrow marching band for my four years of high school, and also being in different Wind Ensembles for three of those four years. In my time as a member of the Pride, I have marched in the Pasadena Rose Parade, been present in four separate Super Regional Championships, and I have competed in Grand National Championships three times. In my senior year of high school, the Pride had a triple-crown season; placing first in all and setting records in two of the three competitions we had been in. In concert band, it has been equally as successful a year. I was lucky enough to be placed into my school’s Wind Ensemble.
Have you ever went on a trip to Chamberlain? Well if you have you, probably didn’t go for the reason I did. Last year near the middle/end of the year I went on my first choir trip to Chamberlain to sing at the school. I went with two of my teachers and peers in my choir class. About a week and a half in advance we got told we were going to Chamberlain to sing.
My senior year was a great year for me. I was elected the Band captain by not only the staff but the entire marching band. My band director, Leslie Gilreath, wrote me as the main soloist throughout the show and got to perform in front of thousands every competition.
