The Medina Mustang Marching Band traveled to Sandusky, Ohio from May 26 to May 28 to participate in the Music in the Parks festival.

The band has not traveled outside of NYS since 2019. The festival was started in 1981 and is a day-long event held annually across the U.S. Music groups perform before adjudicators who rate the ensemble and then awards are issued.

Medina earned a superior rating and Seagan Majchrzak, a senior, received a special award for outstanding soloist.

The kids did a great job in their performance and as ambassadors  of the Medina community.  The chaperones are to be commended for all their diligence in keeping everyone on track with their busy schedule.

In addition to the competition the band also went to the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame and the Cedar Point amusement park. They perform today in Medina in the Memorial Day parade.

The band will next compete in Sherburne June 2nd and June 3rd.
