Medina Mustang Band

The Medina Mustang Band traveled to Washington, DC from May 15-18 and competed in the Music in the Parks Festival.

Instead of numerical scores the band received ratings. Medina was rated “superior” in parade and wind ensemble and “excellent” in jazz. Jenna Brien was rated “best” jazz soloist. There were approximately 20 schools performing in this festival.

Band Directors Jim Steele and Cheri Pritchard stated that the students performed well and represented their school and community very well. The trip was a huge success and everyone had a wonderful time.

The directors want to publicly thank the chaperones and staff that made this trip a success. Without the chaperones, the Band Boosters, school administrators and staff, the band would not have been able to pull off this monumental trip.

The Mustangs look forward to performing their street show, “Crossing Abbey Road,” for the Medina community on Memorial Day. The next and last competition for the band will be at the Gorham Pageant of Bands on May 30-31.
