            On September 17 Payson High School Marching Band went to a band competition at Orem High School.  This exhibition competition was an opportunity for the bands from Utah high schools and attendees perform their marching shows for music professionals and get critiqued on the show.

The students had a great experience, and for some it was the first real performance of their marching band careers.

“It was exciting, it was stressful, lots of fun” said Abby Bennion one of the new members of the Marching Band.

            The students did a great job at their performance and set goals to continue to improve their skills in their musical performance.

“We did everything technically right, now we just need to make it better” said PHS Drum Major Caleb Larsen.  “Our next goal,” he added “is to win.”

The band followed up their performance on Saturday 24 at the Nebo Competition held at Payson High School.
