Under the direction of Mr. Sean Harris and Mr. Brian Olian, the R-PHS Marching Band brought home another state championship this past Saturday at Ford Field in downtown Detroit.
The band was flawless in their performance of "Table Manners", the title to their show. Our Marching Band has had a strong history of excellence and success. In the last 20 years, accomplishments have included 10 BOA (Bands of America) Regional Class AA Championships, a BOA Regional Grand Championship in 2008, A BOA Grand National Championship in Class AA in 1999, 12 Flight 2 State Championships and 3 Flight 3 State Championships (now 4!).
The final scores from Saturday's State Championships are presented below.
What's become a tradition after a Championship, is our drumline throwing down some awesome beats for the Rocket City faithful. Our drumlilne did exactly that before the band boarded their buses for the trip back home. A treat for our directors and students was a police escort as they entered our county. Many people took notice to how special it is to win a state championship and have it be recognized by a police escort onto our campus! Great job band! We are so proud of you all!
