The band has been working since August preparing their show, "The Best of Queen." They performed "Another One Bites the Dust," "Bicycle Race" and "Bohemian Rhapsody." Under the leadership of Drum Major Maris Delgadillo, the band received a Superior rating for their performance. They were evaluated by six judges for their performance in five categories: Music performance, marching and maneuvering, general effect, percussion and color guard.

The Larned High School Indians received superior ratings from five of the six judges. Director Marc Webster said he is very proud of the effort and performances of the band throughout the fall and especially at the marching festival. With two marching performances left this season, the band is looking forward to working on concert band music and getting ready for basketball pep band.

A special thanks goes out from Webster to flag instructor Bethany Skelton, assistant director Gene Williams and volunteer marching instructor Art Wagner for their help in making this marching season a success.
