The Medina Mustang Band participated in Gorham’s 56th annual pageant of bands on June 2-3.  This pageant is particularly special to Medina because it was started by Robert Steele, father of Jim Steele, the Medina band director.

In jazz, Medina’s Jr. High and Sr. High took 1st place in their respective classes. Both Jr. High and Sr. High received recognition for Best Brass, Best Rhythm and Best Woodwind. Lacey Kenward received recognition for her trumpet solo.

In concert band, both Jr. High and Sr. High won 1st place.

Medina had a perfect score of 100 in the parade competition along with recognition for Best Drum Major and Guard, and received the overall Class Grand Champions.

This pageant concludes this season’s competitions. However, following the band banquet the music for the fall season will be distributed, practices begin and band camp is scheduled for August. Looking forward to another challenging and exciting year!
