The band performed their 2011 field show, "A Modern Tale of Love," which is a modern interpretation of the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet. The music selections included: "Somewhere," "Time of My Life,""Just the Way You Are," and "Uprising."
The band had been preparing for this show since late August. Starting with their first competition October 8th, their competition scores have been recorded and were used to determine if they were one of the top 10 3A bands at their regional competition November 5th.
This season has proven to be a very successful one.
"I'm very proud of Mesa's performance. That was the reward," said director Sandy Gilboe.
For some, it was the last of many.
"Only one word can describe this season for me: amazing! The band this year has been filled with a huge amount of energy, pride, and commitment. I'm very happy to say that this was my senior year of marching band. I've had the privilege to lead such a great band and group of people," said drum major Chris Henrriquez.
Now that marching season is over, the band is now preparing for their Christmas concert on December 7th. After that, they will begin their concert, Drumline, Jazz Band, and Small Ensemble seasons.
