All Saints Band Wins 2 Awards at Festival

Congratulations to members of the All Saints Band on their performance at the Music in the Parks Festival this past Friday at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. The All Saints Advanced Band performed in competition at Jamestown High School. The judges in the competition were professors from Virginia Commonwealth University and Old Dominion University.  

As a result of their performance, the students attended an awards ceremony in Busch Gardens, where they were awarded two trophies: 1st Place in their Division and the Esprit de Corp Trophy, the “spirit of the festival” award. This award recognizes the participating organization that displays an exemplary attitude of positive support and outstanding personal behavior throughout the festival weekend.

Performance recap scores revealed that our band had been awarded the highest scores at the festival, 93/95 points from each judge. The students and chaperones then enjoyed fun time and lunch at Busch Gardens. Mr. Sokolowski and Mrs. Croson, two lead band parents, organized a wonderful band trip for our students.  

Our band will be performing its Spring Concert tomorrow (Tuesday, May 14) at 2:00 and 7:00 PM in the Parish Activities Center. Come out and support our talented beginner and advanced bands. Our thanks to all of the chaperones for their assistance on the trip, and a special thanks to Mr. Barry Ward for his continued outstanding leadership of the All Saints Band Program.
