Legend Band finishes 6th in 3A

Congratulations to the 2009 LHS Marching Band. On Monday, Oct. 26th the Band competed in its 1st CBA State Marching Championship
in Pueblo, Colorado. The band finished 6th in the 3A class. The band started the day in 7th place and after pre-lims had moved up to 5th place and by the end of the day at the evening finals under the lights of the Thunderbowl Stadium they finished 6th!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW!

Our students competed in their 1st year of marching at the very highest level. Their hard work, perserverance and dedication to excellence of the activity paid off.

There were many highlights throughout the day, but a student favorite was the FULL BAND RETREAT that we were a part of. All of the finalist bands were paraded back on to the field for the final awards… what a site to see our 70 kids standing in perfect attention and parade rest during this memorable ceremony.

Congratulations to the 2009 Legend Titan Marching Band! We are all VERY PROUD of you!

Our season started in July when it seemed like no one knew what was going on including the difference between left and right face, but we soon got that figured out. After summer band camp, learning music, breaking down drill, a parade, an overnight trip, 4 football games, homecoming week, a marching festival, the CBA contests and Tuesday/Thursday rehearsals, it all started to make sense. “It Was A Journey” !!!!!!!!!!! Thanks to everyone for travelling with us…. The Legend has begun…..

Thanks to the students, the boosters(who all went the extra mile), the parents -You know who you are and THANK YOU! Rob, Linda, Tohbias, Alex, David, , Erin, Rachel, Ryan, Tucker, Erik, Angelo, Heather, Charlie, Russ and Katie -you also made a difference! And finally, thanks to our principals – Corey Wise (Legend) and Karen Tarbell (Cimarron) we appreciate your support!

Legend Band Shines in 1st Competitive Field Show event…

The LHS Titan marching band finished 2nd in the 3A class of the 2009 Grand Junction West Marching Festival. In the field show category they finished with a score of 50.80 only .05 behind the 1st place band. The band also finished a very close 2nd in the parade category as well. The band earned its highest scores in the visual and music caption areas. The band also finished 6th overall out of 14 bands. —- Congratulations Band!

Our students and parents all shared stories about how numerous people sought them ought to congratulate them on the parade and field show performances.

After the event was over, in an unprecedented show of sportsmanship and humility, members of the Palisaide Band came over to congratulate the Legend HS Band members. It was a wonderful exchange and it says a lot about the Director and Students of Palisaide and I’m sure it is something our Legend students will not soon forget!

Congratulations to the Palisaide HS band they won more than 1st place in the 3A class…

NEXT up is the CBA Regional Band Competition on Thursday, Oct. 15th at Littleton HS. Performance Time is 4:45pm… In a major show of support we need every parent in attendance. WEAR YOUR LEGEND BLUE!
