Thanks to our PHS Marching Band Director, Mr. David Bonilla-Garcia for his report of our band's participation in the Boyertown Band Cavalcade. More proof that Hard Work Pays Off and more reason to say Proud to be from Pottstown. PS when he called me I could hear he was playing this music in the background.
On Saturday, after a long day of practice that began in early morning hours, the Pottstown High School Marching Band took home the 1st place trophy in the American Open Class at the Boyertown "Arlen Saylor" Cavalcade of Bands competition.
Their first outing of the season netted a score of a 71.6 to take 1st place, and win both the High Percussion and High Auxiliary awards. Under the direction of David Bonilla-Garcia, the band begins its competitive season strong as they continue towards Cavalcade of Bands Championships held on November 13th in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
