MJHS’s band has accomplished many things over the years, but perhaps one of their greatest achievements happened just last week. For the first time in the history of our high school, our band came in second place in the annual Contest of Champions.
This contest is incredibly competitive, and even placing sixth is an impressive triumph.
Every year, the marching band puts together a show that involves both music and choreography, while all members are dressed in costume. All this would not have been possible without the tenacity and spirit of this talented group of young people.
This year’s music was all arranged by Mount Juliet High’s very own Mr. Demonbreun. No doubt, he was proud to be apart of this history-making team.
The marching band had an amazing performance and was shocked when they placed second. They have never placed this high before, and this was undoubtedly a successful end to their season.
