The OHS Marching Band placed fourth in the Western Region KMEA 4-A Marching Band Quarterfinals on Oct. 24. This is the highest the OHS band program has ever placed in this event.
In KMEA Semi-Finals held @ Greenwood High School on Oct. 31, Owensboro High School placed 9th in Class 4-A. This is three places higher than last year and a major step forward in our band program. Adjudicators noted a significant improvement in visual performance over last year.
State marching competition allows our high school students to measure their progress with the established marching traditions across Kentucky. As our program continues to grow and mature over the next two years, we expect even greater things ahead.
Band Directors Abe Barr, Aaron Klausing, Brandon Etienne and Kaitlin Callihan appreciate the outstanding efforts of our band students, the support of our vibrant band parents and the ongoing support our community, school administration and school board.
Our senior band members have been integral in the progress we are experiencing. Working with our newest members to make them better musicians and better students, they are shaping the future of our OHS Bands. Thanks to the following seniors for making a difference!
