Pierce High School Band Bangs the Drums in Vermillion, South Dakota

by Megan Druyor


On October 19, the Pierce High school band traveled to Vermillion, South Dakota, to play at the Quad State Marching Competition, and placed second. 

Audrea Huber, a clarinet player, said, “I think we did fine, there is obviously stuff we need to work on still, but we have been practicing a lot, and I really think that we have been hitting the music hard and have improved a lot on all the music.”

The band has been working hard during school every day, sometimes students would go to the band room to practice on the last study hall of the school day. As Sarah Fenton, a clarinet player as well, said, “I think we were really good musically and with our marching but our diagonals could have been better.” 

Michael Sindt, the band teacher said, “The band is continually stepping up their performance level with each competition and Saturday was no exception.  They are marching more precisely and playing more musically all the time.” The band’s next competition will be next Saturday, October 26, in Kearney, where they will compete in state marching band.
