The Lake Central Marching Band competed on Nov. 11 at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind., for the Grand National Band Competition. The Marching Band competed against 99 other bands and made it to the preliminary round.

“We tried our hardest this year. I’m really proud of the band and what we have done. It was a transition year with directors, so everything was kind of hectic,” Nadia Magnabosco (12) said.

Last years assistant director of bands and director of percussion, David Nelson, Music, took the position of band director this year and led the Marching Band in their show, “Silver Lining.” The band started practicing for Silver Lining in May, went to band camp in July and had practice every Tuesday through Friday since the first week of school. They also used Saturdays for practice or competitions.

“Originally the band show was very literal. It was actually just about clouds, but it progressed into a deeper meaning of people finding their silver lining when going through some tough times,” Magnabosco said.

They Lake Central Marching Band season has ended, but in just six months, it will all start again and a new show will begin.
