Once again, they are the champions.
The 176-member Plymouth-Canton Educational Park Marching Band was crowned Flight 1 state champions at the Michigan Competing Band Association competition at Ford Field recently.
The students were also chosen as the winners of the Outstanding Musical Performance award, the Outstanding Visual Performance honor and won the Outstanding General Effect category.
The Flight One competition included the 12 largest by student population high schools in the state. Walled Lake Central High School took second place and Rockford Marching Band from the Grand Rapids area earned third place.
Plymouth Canton Marching Band supporters and parents waved moons and stars during the competition, the symbols of the group, falling silent as the band members took to the field to perform the 2015 show E.X.O. which won the top marks in the competition from the judges.
The marching band members are now preparing for their trip to Pasadena, CA, to march in the Tournament of Roses Parade on Jan. 1, 2016. Fundraising efforts are continuing to collect the money to send the band members, equipment, instruments and props to California to appear in the national parade.
