Nixa’s marching Crimson Corps picked up a win and several honors at a major competition.
The Corps picked up first place honors as well as being given the Outstanding Music and Outstanding Visual awards at the Blue Springs South Marching Festival on September 21.
The band took the win over Olathe Northwest by .05 points. The bands were judged on both the band’s overall performance and individual musician performance. The judges look at technical musical and visual performance and then overall effect of music and visuals.
The Corps also represented Nixa at the Bands of America regional at the University of Northern Iowa on September 28. The trip marked the farthest the Corps has traveled for competition. The Corps earned a 9th place finish, the highest they have ever obtained in a Bands of America event.
