Saturday, November 7, 2009, Ascension Parish had a strong showing from their parish. Three of the local high schools, Dutchtown, East Ascension and St. Amant competed in the Showcase of Marching Bands at ULL’s Cajun Field in Lafayette, Louisiana.
All three bands had excellent performances. It was such a pleasure to watch our Ascension Parish band students excel in what they do. The crowd loved what they saw!
A huge round of applause is needed for all of the band directors, students and parents. All of your hard work certainly showed on Saturday night. I personally thank the band directors for their dedication and genuine care of the students that they teach. You have inspired these young people to excel at so many levels. Each of you are truly special. I also would like to thank all of the parents that help the bands. Without the help you all give, much of this would not be possible. From the bottom of my heart…THANK YOU.
It is no secret that I am a St. Amant High School Band Fan… I have a special interest there. With that being said, you can click the video below to view the performance of the St. Amant Golden Gator Band.
I will monitor YouTube and as I see the other schools performances uploaded I will provide a link for those as well.
