CHS Marching Band takes top honors
Wolfpack music students marched to their own drumbeat at the Edison Invitational Competition held in Huntington Beach on November 1, and they were rewarded for their efforts. The Claremont High School Marching Band took first place, with additional individual first-place honors going to CHS Percussion and Color Guard.
Kudos go to the dedicated students whose countless hours of practice paid off, as well as to tireless music director Melanie Riley Gonzales, who helms the orchestras and marching bands at both CHS and El Roble as well as the CHS Jazz Ensemble.

Next up for the tuneful students of the Wolfpack Marching Band is the Semi-Final Field Competition for Marching Band set for tomorrow, Saturday, November 15, from noon to 7:30 p.m. at El Modena High School in Orange. Depending on how they perform in the semi-finals, the Pack will have the chance to vie in the Championship Competition for Marching Band on November 22.
