KMEA Quarterfinal Recap and onto Semifinals this Saturday!

Dear Band Family,

I hope all are well!  Congratulations to our amazing band students!  The staff and I are still smiling ear to ear!  To recap the events of this past Saturday’s KMEA State Marching Band Championship Quarterfinal, HC finished in 4th place with one of 5 distinguished ratings and earned a spot in the state semifinal this upcoming Saturday at Papa John’s Stadium in Louisville!  This was our best finish at a Class 5A Quarterfinal in school history and I couldn’t be more proud of the students for the way they have prepared all season!  By finishing in the top 4, HC will perform in the afternoon at 5A semifinals for the first time 🙂  We perform at 1:30 PM this Saturday, October 29th!  This season has been a thrill and we are excited about the final week!  Once again, our band family carried itself with professionalism and class and earned the right to continue the season along with the state’s finest programs!  A heart felt THANK YOU to everyone for your effort!
