The Bands of Wando had a very successful weekend winning their class in 4A Preliminary Competition and sweeping all awards—Outstanding Visual Performance, Outstanding Musical Performance, Outstanding General Effect.
For finals, class does not matter and simply the highest finishing 12 bands compete head to head. Wando received its highest placement at the Atlanta Regional finishing in 2nd Place to the 2014 National Champion Tarpon Springs from Florida. Tarpon scored a 91.75 where Wando received a 90.60. We also received the Outstanding Visual Performance Award for finals. All finalist awards are listed below.
Importantly, the kids were pros the entire weekend. They handled themselves with such class and maturity, they were complimented at every turn. We are very proud of them!
Thank you all for what you do to help us make them successful! Especially those things you do that we (or no one) never know.
