Although the students in the high school marching bands who were participating in the Oxnard High School’s 27th annual Keepin’ the Music Alive competition Saturday were being judged, they were also learning valuable life lessons, according to Oxnard High School Music Director Fundi Legohn.

“This is music education. It’s important for a balanced individual. This allows the kids to show off their skills, while exercising creativity, marching, color guard and percussion,” said Legohn, who is in his 20th year with the program. “We’re keeping the music alive, which is the name of the tournament. I know music helped me growing up.”

The tournament was held in the somewhat soggy fields at Bud Houser stadium at the high school, where the rain spared the event.
