We did it! Unanimous Superior ratings! We are a Virginia Honor Band for the fourth year in a row. When the Wind Symphony got unanimous Superior ratings (the highest score) at the Concert Assessment on March 18, 2017, that was the second half of earning Honor Band status. This listener thought the band sounded professional on these Grade 6 (Advanced+) numbers. Click here to listen to the program:
We jumped the first hurdle to Honor Band status when we earned unanimous Superior ratings from all the judges at the Marching Assessment on October 22, 2016. That performance marked the conclusion of a very successful marching season where we won our first competition, came in second in the next competition, and entered a Bands of America competition for the first time.
