HCMB onto Semifinals!

Dear HCMB Family,

What a fun season!  We had another great day on Saturday finishing with a distinguished rating and in 3rd place at the KMEA 5A East Regional Quarterfinal earning a spot to perform in the last 8 bands at the state marching band championship semifinal this upcoming Saturday 10/28 at Papa John’s Stadium in Louisville!  This was our highest ever finish in the class 5A East region! The final regional placement was as follows:


Madison Central

Henry Clay



Tates Creek

Dixie Heights

Dupont Manual


The students have done great work all year and continue growing daily.  They have been a joy to work with and the staff and I are excited about the final push this week as we finish one of our strongest seasons ever!

I wanted to take a minute to thank all of the students and parents for your words of support and your generous gifts to me and my family during what has been a difficult few months personally.  April, our children, and I are grateful to be a small part of such a wonderful and loving band family!
