Earlier this month, five drum line members performed at the Iowa High School Music Association’s solo and ensemble contest. Justo Gonzalez, Princeton Little, Warren Krieg, Ryan Mackey, and Jalen Gary scored “one” ratings on both of the performances during the contest. The superior rating is the highest possible at the IHSMA and requires precise playing among the members. Students from across the state compete at this annual event and to score a “one” is a significant accomplishment. As we move into spring, drum line season will begin to pick up with the full line up getting ready to play at community events.
