It isn’t easy being a part of the Los Alamos Marching Band. It requires a lot of work. The last two weeks of summer vacation are filled with practices. Students give up time after school to practice, in addition to the regularly scheduled band classes. It’s not just learning music either, it is learning drills as well
When the marching band makes a public appearance, it is not only on the local football field to entertain the crowd during a home game; but also competitions. In October alone the marching band traveled throughout New Mexico to compete in three different competitions.
This large amount of work is enough to make you want to throw in the towel, but the LAHS marching band didn’t back down from the challenges and their determination paid off.
In October, the marching band took home 13 trophies from the three competitions it was involved in and 22 students made the district honor band, along with 18 from Los Alamos Middle School.
At the Tournament of the Bands held Oct. 25 in Las Cruces, the marching band earned every top award in their class, which was class B. These awards included outstanding visual, outstanding music and outstanding general effect.
Additionally, the band was invited to march in an exhibition later that day.
