The Lassiter Marching Band is known for going on some big trips. During the 2018-2019 school year, the group flew to California to march in the 130th Tournament of Roses Parade, for the fifth time in their history. This season the band has two trips planned, and even though the destinations are less exciting than California, they’re still interesting. Both trips take place so the band can attend a competition, one at Western Carolina University, and the other one at Georgia State University.
The first competition will take place on the weekend of October 19th, 2019. The Lassiter band will drive up to Western Carolina University to participate in the 19th annual Tournament of Champions. In addition to competing, the band will also go to Carowinds amusement park. The second competition takes place at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia. The band will compete during the day and then, the overall champion of the tournament will be invited as a special guest to Georgia State’s football game later that evening. Next time you see a band kid, try to remember to wish them luck on their upcoming competitions!
