NUNDA – The Albion High School Marching Band finished with the top score of the five bands in Nunda on Saturday. The Purple Eagles’ score of 97.8 represents the band’s highest marks of the season.

Band Director Mike Thaine was pleased with the group’s performance.

“Every week, we ask each student to take on the personal responsibility of doing just a little better than they did last time,” he said. “So far, they’ve come through with flying colors.”

Two weeks ago at the Seneca Falls Pageant of Bands, Albion earned high honors among the seven bands in competition with a score of 94.75.

The Purple Eagles’ show is based on music of the rock group Queen.  The band wraps-up the 2018 season at the home town Strawberry Festival parade on Saturday.

Spectators show their appreciation in the background as the woodwinds finish the drill for the show’s closing number, “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
