The Wenatchee High School Golden Apple Marching Band took first place in its division at Sumner’s Sunset Festival of Bands. Eleven bands from around the Northwest participated in the competition. The band is directed by Jim Kovach and assistant director Tim Zanol.
Over the last few weeks, the GA Band has been fine tuning and making subtle changes to its “Wildfire” show. The hours of practice and hard work are reflected in the scores for its performance leading to its best standing so far this season. In addition to the first-place award, the band earned caption awards for best drum majors, best percussion and best music.
