Sunday, Nov. 13, the Perkiomen Valley Marching Vikings competed in the US Scholastic Band Association (USSBA) National Championships in Allentown, PA. Competing against 21 bands in the Group IIIA division, the Marching Vikings took first place with a score of 96.588, and also won caption awards for Best Visual Performance, Best Color Guard, and Best Overall Effect. Also, of the 97 ‘A Class’ bands in all group sizes that performed this weekend – including bands more than twice our size - the Marching Vikings had the 3rd highest score overall. Attached is the scoring summary for our division. For more information, go to www.yea.org/ussba.
The Championship banner, trophy, and caption plaques are on display in the High School Band Room.
We are especially proud of this year’s group of students – 62% of the Marching Vikings are brand new.... 29 of them are freshmen! A huge thank you to our entire Music Department staff for giving these kids a great foundation to build upon!
