The Abilene High School Marching Band is back again with a number of 116 students.

They competed once more as a marching ensemble at the Kansas State Fair, and achieved what they were hoping for, the Superior 1 rating.

For the past several years, Abilene has attended this event.

They’ve been marching at the practice field during seminar and in class to prepare for field shows, as well as competitions.

They performed an arrangement of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and other of his biggest hits alongside the AHS dance team at our second home-game of the season.

During the Halloween-themed football game, they will once again perform during the halftime show with the dance team.

 

Sophomore Shaylah Laun says the band has impro

ved their field shows since last year and can’t wait to see more improvement throughout the season. On September 7th, sign up sheets for District Honor Band were posted throughout the band room.

Everyone trying out had sheet music, which they had to perform to judges in hopes they’ll make it into the Honor Band.

Good luck to all those auditioning, as the AHS band hopes to keep their reign as “the best band in the land.”
