Jazz and Pasta at the Pastapalooza Dinner Concert

2020 Winter Guard Debut

IMG_0584Congratulations to our winter guard who premiered their show this past Saturday at Kennesaw Mountain HS.  We are very proud of their first performance!  The competitions are a little bit different in this activity than in marching band because they perform their show at multiple competitions in the SAPA circuit. The show will continue to evolve and grow artistically and emotionally as choreography may change, staging may be adjusted, props will be added, etc. They compete again this Saturday at East Coweta HS! Go Trojans!
