Paris High School Blue Blazes Band advances to Area
On Tuesday, Nov. 17, the Paris High School marching band competed in Sulphur Springs at the UIL Region IV Marching contest. They earned a first division rating and now advance to the Area marching contest on Dec. 5 in Lindale with performance time being at 2:04 p.m.
“It’s been an extremely unnerving year and it feels good to finally get to show what we are made of,” stated PHS Band Director Charles Grissom. “We are nowhere close to where we will end up as we continue to improve. This performance validated our program’s commitment and love of the activity. I appreciate everyone who has persevered the past few months to allow these kids to get to do something they love.”
The Paris High School band is under the direction of Charles Grissom, assisted by Bryan Ewing, Beverly Ewing, Byron Myrick, Louie Fehl, and Sydney Robinson. PHS Flag Corp is under the supervision of Hunter Mainguy.
