Vista Murrieta High School Band & Color Guard students were awarded the
Al Castronovo Award...What does this mean?
"This is a special award and is not based on any scores from the competition. The Bands of America staff will evaluate groups throughout the complete event to select the one group most exhibiting pride, spirit, enthusiasm, friendliness, and unity of purpose for the activity of marching bands in this country."
Out of 100 bands competing only one band is selected, and in my opinion this is THE most important award of the entire event. This is not something you can rehearse and perfect. This award is a reflection of the quality and the values that each of our members hold inside.
Field shows will be forgotten, but the respect, dignity, and integrity that makes up each of these students will carry with them throughout their lives and I could not be more proud of these incredible young men and women.
