Outstanding Championship Performances for Unionville High School Indoor Guard & Drumline

Congratulations to the Unionville High School Indoor Color Guard and Indoor Drumline for exceptional performances at their Championship competitions on Saturday.

The Indoor Color Guard won 1st place at the Cavalcade of Bands Color Guard Championships Scholastic Regional A Division.  Following an undefeated season, they had a terrific performance competing against eight Color Guards from Southeastern Pennsylvania schools.  Their show, “At the Speakeasy”, is a lively routine with a 1920’s flair.  The students spun flags, rifles and sabres with complex choreography that had the crowd cheering.  The Guard is under the direction of Mary Litzenberg, Jen Hilbish, Tanner Jones, Woody Kleintz, Kate Rittler and George Thomson.

The Indoor Drumline took 2nd place in a very competitive field at the Mid Atlantic Percussion Society Championships.  Their program, “Leave Your Mark”, is a musical introspective about making a difference in the world by finding the best part of oneself to give. The drumline successfully captivated both the audience and judges to secure their second place finish out of twelve competing drumlines.  The Unionville Drumline is very excited to compete in the World Guard International Percussion World Championships being held in Dayton April 14-17.  The Drumline is under the direction of Cody Stafford, Trey Collins, Devon Bond, Matt Marion, Maria Graham, Sean Clendening, Brianna Dougherty and Chris Houck.

Tuesday, April 12th, the Unionville High School Indoor Percussion Ensemble will host a Dayton Send Off Show in the UHS gym. We encourage all friends, family, neighbors and acquaintances to come out and enjoy the program "Leave Your Mark" one last time before they head to Dayton for the WGI World Championships.  Doors open at 7:00 PM and the show will last approximately 30 minutes.  The Indoor Color Guard will also do an encore performance of their award winning show, “At the Speakeasy”.

Admission is free! Let's pack the house and give this group a proper send off!!!
