All FSPS Marching Bands earn Superior scores

Music was in the air at Northside High School as bands from around the region competed in the annual Region II Marching Contest. The event presented by the Arkansas School Band and Orchestra Association (ASBOA) was hosted at Mayo-Thompson for the 20 of 21 years the ASBOA has required the assessment. Junior and Senior High School Bands from 20 area school districts presented polished marching shows for the judges and visitors to the free public event.

Fort Smith Public School District bands earned recognition with “perfect” scores. Chaffin, Darby, Kimmons, and Ramsey Junior High Schools, and Northside and Southside High Schools earned a superior score from each of the four judges. Alma, Booneville, Charleston, Clarksville, Dardanelle, Dover, Lavaca, Ozark and Van Buren High Schools also received four “ones” for their performances.

Performances lasted throughout the day, with bands ranging in size from 12 to 245 members. Shows included a wide variety of music ranging from the classical to songs of the 1960’s and tributes to the popular television show Glee. Although schools do not technically compete against one another, they are given a performance ranking by four judges. Judges score each of the bands on a scale from one to four, with one being superior; two, excellent, etc.

Arkansas Tech University’s Band of Distinction closed the contest as the featured performance of the evening. 

School Board meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the Service Center Auditorium, located in Building B of the Service Center Complex, 3205 Jenny Lind Road. The meetings are open to the public.
