Lakewood Ranch Marching Mustang Band – 2010 Competition Show [Video]

Lakewood Ranch Marching Mustang Band 2010 competition show entitled “It was a Great Year” was performed in exhibition during the Music in Motion festival. This years theme is based on the music we experience through each of the seasons during the year. The band qualified for the Florida FMBC state semi-final round competition on November 20, 2010. The Marching Mustang Band is currently ranked fourth in the state for Class 4a, as they head into the semi-final round at Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg, Florida. The video was recorded at an FMBC competition hosted by the Lakewood Ranch Marching Mustang’s on November 6, 2010. This video is not their final version of the performance. In just one short week, directors Bob Schaer and Ron Lambert have tweeked the show for the state competition. Kelly and I caught a quick glimps at the football game at Hardee Senior High School last night. We look forward to watching our kids perform and be the best they can be. Cheers to the Lakewood Ranch music staff.

Evan and Lakewood Ranch Marching Band

Last Friday night, Lakewood Ranch Marching Band performed part 1 of their 2009 competition show. I was really impressed with how they performed this complex Philip Glass piece. This year, Evan is a member of the pit and will be playing the timpani during the entire show.

Another highlight of the evening for us was Evan having his picture taken during the performance. This year, Evan is a member of the pit and will be playing the timpani during the entire show. The picture was taken by the East County Observer’s Michael Eng. After they completed their half-time performance, we noticed Michael asking Evan for his name. To see more pictures of the band and the spirit of Lakewood Ranch students, go over to the East County Observer. I will have video in the next few weeks for all to see.
