Blue Devil Band
Blue Devil Band: Morgan Scott
The ECCHS band is preparing for competition season. They have already had their first exhibition at Cedar Shoals High School, which according to Soniah Jones, “The exhibition went better than expected, but we still have improvements to make.” The band is preparing for their first competition on October 7th, at Northgate High School. There, they hope to receive all superior ratings-- the highest ones possible . Their competition show theme is “That Good (K)night”.
The band performed their Disney Show for the first time during the Elbert vs. Madison away game. The Disney Show features music from Moana, The Little Mermaid, and Frozen. The songs that they play include “How Far I’ll Go,” “Part of Your World,” and “Let it Go.” The band enjoys performing the Disney Show, because it brings more excitement from the crowd, which is very encouraging. According to band captain, Stephanie Higgins, “The band is headed in the right direction, but our main focus is visuals and music.” The band this year mostly consists of freshmen and seniors. However, the underclassmen are doing extremely well, considering it’s their first or second year.
The ECCHS majorettes also competed at the Cedar Shoals exhibition receiving all positive feedback from the majorette judges. They completed their routine with only five drops. The majorettes performed the Disney Show at home for the first time this past Friday during halftime show of the Elbert vs. Putnam game.
