THE ROAR SUPERIOR AT 2016-17 Marching ASSESSMENT
Brookland Band Earns FIRST EVER SUPERIOR RATING at Region Marching Assessment at Paragould High School on Tuesday, October 18, 2016. This was only the 2nd time they have been to assessment, having earned an Excellent last year.
2016 Arkansas Open Results
While we were hoping for a Superior Rating at our first ever marching contest, THE ROAR performed very well and set high marks for future members of the band.
The band earned an over-all score of 77.5, which is on the high end of a Second Division (Excellent). Two of the six judges - Chris Tate (80/100) one of two judges scoring marching and Marcy Wells (80/100) one of two judges scoring Overall Efffect - rated us at a SUPERIOR level in their respective categories, but the other four (Steve Warner (77.4/100) and Karen Dismuke (76/100), music; Danny Davis (73/100), marching; and Leigh Boyce (78.4/100), Overall Effect) called us at Division Two.
We were estastatic to learn that our PERCUSSION SECTION won our Division. They were beaming with pride as they heard BROOKLAND called over the Red Wolf PA system and the band went a little crazy in excitement and congratulations. Members of the line are section leader and lead snare. Leo Montgomery; Snare, Cynthia Hearring; Tenor Drums, Bri Gibson; Bass Drummers Cole Baldridge, Isaac Rodriguez, Jacob Gore and Jared Harrison (Bass Drum section captain); and cymbalist, Ella Miller.
Here is the breakdown of the final results for Brookland:
Division AA1 (4 bands)
Class AA (12 bands)
Overall (24 bands)
As you can see, the students fared very well in the competition. We were the only band at the event that had never competed before in a marching competition and we have set a high bar for our future growth.
It should be noted that "Overall Effect" refers to a measure of music selection and performance, marching intricacy and its relation to the music, show design and execution, and entertainment.
Way to go guys. NOW ONWARD TO AN OUTSTANDING CONCERT SEASON!
