The La Vergne High School band traveled to Annapolis, MD this past weekend to compete in The Grand National Champions. The band has a long history of outstanding leadership, under the direction of Edward Freytag. I have a musical background and have always been impressed with this outstanding band.
The dedication of parents involved with the band boosters is also impressive and proves that with parental participation, high outcomes are achieved. The DNJ wrote about La Vergne’s outstanding band,
Now in his ninth year at the school, Freytag said this band has been “top of the class” this season. It claimed the Tennessee State Championship at Carson-Newman College, was named a finalist at the Music City Invitational and finished second at its season opener in Southhaven, Miss. The color guard and percussion teams have finished in the top three at each competition, as well.
Congratulations to LHS band, Mr. Freytag and the many dedicated parents involved. That you placed ninth in the United States Scholastic Bands Association Grand Nationals (competing with 98 bands) is certainly a job well done and makes La Vergne very proud of your accomplishments. Here’s a link to their finish.
