ALBION – The Albion High School Purple Eagles Marching Band took first place at the Seneca Falls Pageant of Bands this weekend. Albion’s score of 94.75 secured first place in Open Class, and proved to be the high parade score in the entire competition, regardless of division.

The Purple Eagles’ competition program this season is entitled, “We Will Rock You”, and features music by the rock band Queen. Riley Seielstad and Arella Ives are the drum majors, Mykailah Roberts and Julie Ives are the Guard Captains, and Justin Robinson is trumpet soloist.

Last week, the Purple Eagles represented the Albion community in the televised Rochester Lilac Festival Parade. Next week, the band will participate in Albion’s Memorial Day parade and ceremony, then compete in Nunda the following weekend.
