Marching Season Finale!

It's the official end to the marching band season. = - ( First we hosted the Tenor Sax end-of-the-season section party (that's all of them minus 2) and then it was time for the Spaghetti Dinner and the Finale Shows (3 of them) in the school gym.
The 3 of us cheered and Matthew found his name.
Dean led as drum major one final time and Kritika twirled her flag.
The band marched into the gym and stood at attention.
Then the band played all their songs for the parade and marching season and the color guard performed their routines to each song.
At the end the lights went out and we were treated to a year end video presentation, Mr. Landes ended the evening with some final remarks and the band showed off all the trophies for the season. They received a standing ovation from the audience.
Here is a 2 minute video of the Purple Carnival parade performance. It may sound like the color guard is performing to a recording, but it is a live performance from the band. Thanks for watching and sharing the season with us. (ps - it's dark because it takes a LONG time for the gym lights to come on after the video presentation).
