Kiski Area High School marching band wins regional band competition
Members of the Kiski Area High School Marching Band are once again regional champions.
For the second consecutive year, the band placed first in the annual Music for All’s Bands of America Central Ohio Regional Championship.
This year’s competition took place Saturday at Fortress Obetz in Obetz, Ohio.
“To say yesterday was a great day for Kiski Area is a huge understatement. Words can’t fully describe the range of emotions that the students, staff and parents go through when all the pieces of the puzzle come together and lead to performances like we all just experienced,” a Sunday post shared on the Kiski Area Bands Facebook page said.
“Congratulations to everyone involved in Kiski Area High School marching band for making the day so special,” the post said. “Class AA Champs winning all captions, as well as winning High Visual, High General Effect, and taking first place overall in finals.”
Kiski competed against 16 other marching bands from high schools in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Missouri. Ten bands, including Moon Area High School, made it to the finals. They came in fourth.
“Also a shout out to Moon Area HS for also representing PA in finals! Congrats to you guys as well!!” the post said.
The Central Ohio Regional Championship is one of 22 Bands of America regional marching band championships held annually across the country.
Kiski also won the contest in 2018. That competition took place last October at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio.
