PUEBLO — It's that time of year again. Pueblo County High School hosts the 5th Annual Southern Colorado Marching Showcase on Monday, October 11th.
This year 11 high school marching bands will perform. These marching bands largely feature from southern Colorado, and many of these bands face unique challenges with marching in rural areas.
PCHS Band Director Josh Muller highlighted that "this event is a celebration of the students' hard work."
Typically, in other competitive marching band events, bands are warming up while others are performing. “In this show we will all warm up before the first band and then all bands go to the stands and get to cheer on their fellow band members from other schools,” said Muller. “This is the most bands we have had in this event.”
The event will have 5 judges from around the state.
The Colorado State University – Pueblo Marching Band will perform for the audience to close out the event.
