The HHS Band performed an eight-to-10 minute live show with the songs “Zorro,” “Panther,” and “Phantom of the Opera.”
Each section of the band was allowed to show off their skills to receive a score on a five-point scale. The Auxiliary Color Guard received a 1 for superior performance.
Percussion received a 2 for excellent performance and the drum major received a 1 for superior performance. The band as a whole received a 2 for excellent performance.
The band as a whole also received three separate trophies and were held with high praise.
