“The show went very well and the band is continuing to do well. It was a great experience for them to go out of chapter and see a lot of other bands, especially the larger bands. Even though they don’t compete against them, they get a chance to see other great musicians and programs. The band is doing very well, but other bands could quickly catch up to them if they aren’t careful. They have to keep working hard through the coming weeks and improve as much as possible to keep increasing our score and remain competitive.”
