The Bainbridge High School Marching Band performed their final 2019 field production of “Tarot” at the Auburn Veteran’s Day Field Competition on Nov. 9, earning a score of 78.78 — the highest in school history — beating out last year’s score of 77.88 at the same competition.
They earned second place in the AA Division, which is reportedly the highest ever, besting last year’s third-place finish.
They also won first place in the AA Division in the category of “Individual Music.”
Under the direction of Chris Thomas, the Spartan marching band was assisted by Terry Marsh, Alisa Mitchell, Ariana Barela, Forrest Hsu, Zac Clark, and Jon Brenner.
Ellen Goldberg served as the “Tarot” consultant.
Student drum majors this year were Kelsie Lacey and Syna Stimson. Student soloists included Jessica Berman on the trumpet and Emily Weaver on the flute.
“Congratulations to all of the marching band and guard members on their accomplishments this year,” said Band Boosters spokeswoman Julie Memke. “Thank you to the band booster association and parent volunteers for doing an amazing job supporting these students.”
