Seven Chilhowie High School Band members participated in the Emory & Henry Marching Wasps Day. The students learn a portion of the field show and march with the Emory & Henry band. The students also get to see how a college band operates in the stands. This was a great learning experience for the students! Great Job, Lauryn Thompson, Alec Roberts, Emily Blevins, Jackson Powers, Ryleigh Clukey, Branden Williams, and Nathan Gentry!
On Saturday, October 21, 2017 the Chilhowie High School Mighty Warrior Band traveled to Richlands, Virginia to participate in their final competition of the 2017 marching season.
Each year, the Virginia Band and Orchestra Director's Association holds both a marching and concert assessment where bands perform for a rating to determine status of Virginia Honor's Band. If bands earn a Superior rating at both competitions, they earn that title for the year. This status must be earned each year to maintain this title.
Under the direction of Mr. William Green, the Mighty Warrior Band has consistently placed first in different categories throughout the season and earning superior rating. They were also named grand champions of the Lee five star classic band competition. On Saturday, they ended their season with a Superior rating. This puts them in line to earn Virginia Honor' s Band for their second year in a row if they maintain superior ratings in their concert assessment.
Please be in the look out for future concerts and events held by the Mighty Warrior Band. Your support is greatly appreciated.
