In the District X Band Assessment at W. Potomac High School on Friday night, Mason band musicians performed three prepared pieces as well as competing in a separate sight-reading assessment, along with bands from Fairfax County and Alexandria.
The GM students earned achieved superior ratings from all four judges, performing the most difficult level "6" music. Only 5 of the 28 high schools performed this challenging level of music. Mason's varied program included: The Footlifter, a march by Fillmore, Khan by Julie Giroux, which depicts Khan and his army on the move, followed by Symphonic Dance No. 3 Fiesta focused on the excitement and color of San Antonio's Mexican celebrations.
Congratulations to GM's outstanding musicians on a truly outstanding performance! The band leaves Saturday, March 14, for their performance trip to Orlando.
