students, and parents of the Chesterton High School Trojan Guard Marching
Band celebrated the accomplishments of the groupís 2017 season by hosting
their annual awards night at the school on Tuesday, February 13.
The awards program
recognizes and rewards the individual efforts that are an integral part of
the success of the Trojan Guard. In recent years, the band has placed high
in the Indiana State School Music Associationís Scholastic State Marching
Band Finals including a first place championship in 2013 and 2015. In
addition to the presentation of individual and group awards, the evening
always includes a slide show presentation, and a recording of the studentsí
State performance so that the students and parents can look back on the many
memories of their season. While this ceremony focuses on the 2017 season,
members of the marching band know that it also signals the start of
preparations for the new 2018 edition of the Trojan Guard.
February 22, the band will begin a series of monthly pre-season rehearsals
that will include the addition of next yearís freshman class. Along with the
new music that will be taught at these rehearsals, this is also the time
when marching basics are introduced to each potential member, and the color
guard students use the time to gain basic skills on their traditional
equipment: rifles, flags, and sabers.
