Congrats: Loveland And Fossil Ridge High School Bands Win State
There are various kinds of state championships to celebrate, in fact I think we would be remiss if we didn't celebrate any and all state championships from our local high schools and that includes the latest ones, from Loveland High School and Fossil Ridge High School as both bands took home state over the weekend from their respective divisions.
The Colorado Bandmasters Association state championship happened over the weekend down in the Springs at the Air Force Academy and the Loveland High School band placed first in the 4A division while Fossil Ridge High School in Fort Collins claimed the 5A title.
So much hard work goes into what these young men and women put out there on the field while working on their craft so congratulations is definitely in order to both schools as it appears that we have some seriously talented musicians here in Northern Colorado.
Kyle Freesen, director of the Crimson Regiment told the Loveland Herald Reporter:
“It was fantastic,” “The kids just worked crazy hard,” said Freesen. “It’s just cool to see their perseverance through the last few weeks of rehearsal.”
Just another side note that another local school, Berthoud High School will be competing in the 2A competition out in Grand Junction later today (Monday 10/31)
