Make It 11!

Last night at Invesco Field, my high school band won the Colorado Bandmaster’s Association 5A State Championship for the 11th time in the past 12 years.  The streak started in my sophomore year, 1994, and the only blemish is a 2nd place finish in the 1997 competition.  The Pomona program, “Piano Forte from middle C on…..” beat out a stronger than expected challenge from Arapahoe High School to claim the title.  Congratulations to the state champion Pomona High School Marching Band!
