CONGRATULATIONS to the Legend HS Marching Band, they finished an amazing 4th place in FINALS out of 20 bands at the 2010 DCMI Festival!

LHS Band receives 3 1’s at Band Festival

Congratulations, to the combined Legend Symphonic/Concert Band, they received 3 1’s(a 1 is superior rating)
at the 2010 CHSAA Lage Group Band Festival , held at Rock Canyon HS. One of the judges gave the band a 1+ (a perfect score and the highest 1 possible and very rare) a second judge gave the band a score 1 point away from a 1+ and the third judge also gave them a very high 1.

The on-stage clinic judge immediately commented on the “obvious discipline and maturity of the band.” When he said that to them, you could see the relief and pride on the band members faces. All three judges were impressed with the high level of music as well as the quality and execution from the band and even more amazed when they found out the band had no juniors or seniors.

In a separate sight-reading clinic, the band received a 2+(excellent rating) and only 1 point away from a 1.

The Legend Symphonic/Concert Band is made up of select 8th graders from Cimarron MS and all 9th and 10th band members from Legend.

Congratulations LHS Symphonic/Concert Band!!!!!!

FYI – for our new parents unfamiliar with the rating system see below:
4=fair/poor(rarely given)
5=unprepared (very rare)
