Glasgow Scottie Band seniors revel in 2nd state win

GLASGOW — Members of the Glasgow Scottie Marching Band walked the halls Monday proudly decked out in band T-shirts and first place medals earned in the state marching band competition.

The Scottie Band reclaimed its state champion title Saturday during the Kentucky Music Educators Association (KMEA) State Marching Band Championship, Class AA, at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green. The marching band is directed by Corey Bonds and has 81 members.

For the upperclassmen, it was their second time coming out on top including their 2010 state win, but last year's show only gained the Scotties fourth place.

Senior baritone saxophone player and fifth-year marcher Zack Shank said the 2012 show had a lot of potential from the beginning, “more potential than a lot of bands can ever dream of.”

“Everything was just kind of lining up and just happening like it should,” Shank said.

The theme, “Rain, Reign, Go Away,” worked really well and appealed to both the band and the crowds, according to senior french horn player Aaron Cambron, who has also marched five years. Songs ranging from “Singin' in the Rain” to Handel's “Messiah,” rain drop props and a field commander portraying an evil queen came together to depict the contrasting theme. The band members understood the theme this year and were able to enjoy putting it together, Cambron said.
