Led by OHS Band Director Fundi Legohn, the Oxnard High School Marching Band & Auxiliary took their “Classical Contortions” field show on the road for the second time this month, and again came home winners by taking three first place awards in their division this past Saturday, November 19, 2011 at Centennial High School’s 16th Annual “Music in Motion” Tournament of Bands competition!

The marching band impressed the judges earning an overall Group 1, Class A – Gold, Full Band score of 74.9. They also earned first place for auxiliary (color guard) (71.0), and percussion (77.0). Currently, the band is #5 overall on the SCSBOA scoring grid with a total score of 217.65, and is now headed to its final competition of the season – the SCSBOA Championships — on December 3, 2011 at Downey High School.

At the end of the competition when all the bands return to the field, it is easy to see that we are not one of the “big bands”. Yet, the mighty Yellow Jackets stand out. The kids stand tall, and respectful of the other bands. I am sure that I can speak for many of the boosters when I say that we have never been so proud as we were Saturday night.

Thank you to everyone who makes this experience possible. Thank you to Mr. Legohn for all you do; thanks to our parents for making sure the kids are there and ready… and a special thanks to our instructors and to the parent/booster volunteers who unselfishly give of their time to chaperone, haul equipment, make props, fix equipment, feed our kids, take care of uniforms, fundraise, etc., etc., etc.!

Taking three first place awards at this competition is yet another huge accomplishment for the marching band and color guard, as well as a source of pride for Oxnard High School.

Congratulations to Mr. Legohn and the OHS Marching Band & Auxiliary!
