TV station CBS Minnesota (WCCO) has named Rosemount (Minn.) High School the state’s best marching band based on a viewer poll.
From CBS Minnesota:
“There are no bench warmers in marching band,” band director Bo Hoover said. “Everyone has to participate 100 percent of the time for us to be successful.”
And on this team, the bar is set pretty high.
“All of our students are almost like athletes,” Hoover said. “They have to train, they have to physically endure and march and perform at really fast tempos.”
Additionally, the band will perform this winter in the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, Calif.
