Saturday, Oct. 14th, the Madison Marching Band had an incredible day that I want to share with you.
We performed at the ISU Mountain West Marching Invitational in Pocatello's Holt Arena. There were 22 bands from Idaho and Nevada at the event.
We placed 1st in the AAAA division, took the caption award for Best Music, and received the Gem State Award as the top band at the competition.
Idaho has no State Championship in Marching Band. This is the closest we come to crowning a State Champion. Madison has received this award 7 times in the past (1999, 2004, '05, '09. '10, '11, and 2017)
Next weekend (21st) we will go to the Southern Idaho Marching Showcase in Minico, then to Utah on the 28th for the Mt. Timpanogos Competition.
Please know how grateful we are for the support we receive from the school, the district office, the school board, and the community. Rexburg truly is a place where the arts are supported and allowed to flourish.
