CHS Band Joins Area High School Bands At Duckroost Bandboree Marching Festival

Last weekend, the CHS Band participated in the 5th annual Duckroost Bandboree Marching Festival at St. Amant’s football stadium.  The band performed its competition show, followed by the bands from East Ascension, Denham Springs, Dutchtown and St. Amant High School. Each band was adjudicated and given feedback from judges on how to improve for the remainder of the marching season. The event also focused on a spirit of collaboration between all of the schools in attendance. Seniors from each band kicked off the event by performing the Star Spangled Banner, and every band member from each school combined to perform a beautiful arrangement of Amazing Grace. The band staff from each school then met with judges for a critique of the show, while all of the students had a dance party on the field.
