From small high-school football fields to large NFL stadiums, the CHSS Marching Band has had an eventful year.
The marching band started off with a bang by
winning first place in a 1A category at Edenton in the Peanut Festival
Battle of the Bands. This was followed up by a second place recognition
in the Pasquotank marching band competition. Then, they ended the
competitive season by participating in a marching band competition in
Despite having ended the competitive season, the
marching band still had to prepare for a performance like no other.
They were slated to perform during Outback Bowl's halftime show.
This was not the only performance, however, with
the band having three other performances during the five day trip. The
band placed first in their division for Concert and Jazz Band, along
with second place in Parade Band. Undoubtedly these performances made
the 2017-2018 season one to remember.
Note: The Island Free Press is delighted to be working

posting their work in our Commentary & Guest Columns page as they
