This past Saturday Chichester HS marching band participated in the Ridley HS marching show. Luckily their performance happened before the downpour that soaked everyone in attendance. The Chichester marching band performed numbers from Journey. The numbers were entertaining and the soloist were solid. Chichesters guard portrayed the time periods style with vibrant colors and teased hair.
In the end the performance earned Chichester HS marching band with their first First place trophy since being back in the competitive circuit. As Chichesters Drum Majors: Tim Cislo and Virginia Tanner accepted their trophy the band and parents erupted in celebration.
Chichester HS also hosted its first Cavalcade of Bands show on Sept. 15. 2012. This definitely seems to be the year of first for Chichester HS Marching Band. We wish them the best of luck in the future.
