The Unionville High School Marching Band won a second-place finish in the Yankee Division at the Cavalcade of Bands Championship this past weekend, achieving the highest score of any marching band in Unionville High history.

Held at the Hershey Park arena, the competition included the Unionville band’s performance of its 2016 show, “Tribal Voices.” The musicians and color guard also earned the High Music Award in their division. The band’s score of 97 out of 100 marked its season’s best as well as a school record, said a band press release.

The UHS Marching Band is comprised of 69 high school students and 13 middle school students. Throughout this season, the band transformed themselves into a precise, professional and synchronized unit. They also learned the rewards of striving as a team toward a shared goal, the release said.

“Tribal Voices” is an exciting, colorful and action-packed performance that pays homage to the voices of America’s tribal heritages. The show ultimately is about how the tribal energy, sounds and ideologies of the past provided the “Tribal Voices” shared by us all and created a sense of community in today’s world, the release said.
