During the last few months, the North Royalton High School Band has been hard at work. They concluded their marching band season performing at the Ohio Music Education Association (OMEA) State Finals in Columbus, where they received a superior rating. This huge accomplishment is the result of months of practice to get their show titled “Carpe Diem” to the best level – and earning the highest rating possible from the panel of adjudicators. Throughout the marching season, the band earned such honors as Best Overall Visual Effect, Best Overall Auxiliary, and Grand Champion Overall.
As the band transitioned into the concert season, all four concert bands performed at the annual Holiday Concert, and the Wind Ensemble helped spread Christmas cheer as they visited the North Royalton Elementary School where they performed for the elementary students and faculty. This performance is a highly anticipated performance and it is a major highlight of the holiday season both for the elementary students as well as the high school students in the Wind Ensemble.
Moving into 2023, the four high school concert bands are already preparing for their upcoming performance at the OMEA Adjudicated Event, held at Olmsted Falls High School on March 10 and 11. The band looks forward to continuing their success into 2023.
