Joint Board Matter With Providence District Supervisor Dalia Palchik
The James Madison High School Marching Ensemble, “Pride of Vienna,” had another exemplary performance year. This fall, the band won the Virginia Marching Band Cooperative State Championship, for the second year in a row. The theme of this year’s performance was Dusk ‘till Dawn. The ensemble’s theme captured awards for music, general effect and visual at the competition.
As part of this historic season, the Madison Marching Band also won the Bands of America Regional Competition. This victory was a first time a Virginia band has won a Bands of America Regional Competition in nearly 40 years.
The 150-member band ensemble competed on the national level and progressed to the semi-final round. After the semi-final competition, the band was awarded the second highest score in the nation, in their class. Madison was the only high school in the commonwealth of Virginia to earn such a distinction.
Chairman, I move we invite representatives of the James Madison High School Marching Ensemble, to an upcoming Board meeting to receive our congratulations on an outstanding season and historic championship.
I would so move.
