Lincoln-Way North Marching Phoenix Enjoy Competition Success
Monday, October 5, 2015

The Marching Phoenix competed at the Red & Black Classic at Northern Illinois University recently, finishing first in class, first overall and earning the caption award for effect.

This competition was a great showing for the Marching Phoenix, said Norths Band Director Kirk Hickman. NIU provides a fantastic venue to perform in with great feedback. We are very proud of our students performances of the fall production.

At the Bands of America regional competition in Ohio, the Marching Phoenix finished fifth place in Class AAA and 15th overall.

We had another strong performance at the Bands of America regional competition and our students are excited to take what they have learned from the last two competitions to continue improving and fine-tuning our product, Hickman said.
