Congratulations to the Redwood Viking Band and Color Guard for an outstanding performance at the Swallow’s Day Parade in San Juan Capistrano.

The Band took 1st place in the competition!!

Our Drum Major (Andrew Bergholtz) took 3rd place in the competition!!

If you want to see the Symphonic Band (Redwoods top Band) perform this week they will be playing in the TOHS Festival on Thursday in the TOHS Performing Arts Center at 6:15.

The video that follows is the official parade video.  It is shot from the middle of the parade route.  The Redwood Viking Band and Color Guard are about 1:11:26 into the video.  Feel free to watch the entire video to compare how we did to the other bands in the parade.  Thank you to Jill Shields for finding and sending me the link to the video.

Thank you to all the teachers, administrators, school staff, band staff, and band parents that make this amazing performance possible.  Without all of you this would not be possible.  It definitely takes a village.  This is an amazing place to work!!

Musically yours,

Adam Payne
Director of Bands
