Practice makes perfect, the saying goes.

With that in mind, there are several happy Delaware musicians this month as the school’s Grand Pacer Marching Band enjoyed success in the recent state marching band finals held recently in Medina.

According to the Hayes Talisman, the excellent student publication at Delaware Hayes High School, the band, led by a new director, Bill Fowles, obtained a “1” (Superior) rating at the event.

The story by Mia Saska profiles what it took to make this achievement happen.

The website of the Ohio Music Educators Association shows that over 125 bands participated, including the Olentangy and Olentangy Liberty bands, both of whom received the same top mark. That list is here.

The Talisman article can be accessed here and is well worth reading.

Congrats, Grand Pacer Marching Band!
