Rocket Band of Blue 'Superior'

Friday, March 7, 2008

The Forrest Junior/Senior High School Band traveled to MTSU on Monday, March 3, to participate in the "Middle Tennessee School Band and Orchestra Association" concert festival at the Wright music building on campus.

As a warm-up, the band performed "Balladair," by Frank Erickson. As their graded piece, the band performed "Rhythm of the Winds," also by Frank Erickson.

The band received Superior Ratings from all three judges.

After the band left the stage, they entered another room for a sight-reading test. The sight-reading judge also awarded the band a Superior Rating.

The Forrest Rocket Band of Blue returned to Chapel Hill that day with two new trophies: one for musical performance and one for sight reading.

Congratulations once again to the Band of Blue.
