Congratulations to the Marian Catholic High School Marching Band from Chicago Heights, USA. They have yet again had another wonderful season of musical achievements. The band on Saturday 27th October finished in first place in Class 2A in the Bands of America Regional Championships in Indianapolis, and placed third in the finals behind two Class 4A schools from Indiana.

The wining performance included a special arrangement of my  wind orchestra work `Earthrise’ along with work by composers John Mackey (Frozen Cathedral) and Michael Giacchino (The Kronos Wartet).

The next big challenge for the Marian Catholic High School Marching Band will be on the 12th November in the US Grand Nationals, in Indianapolis.

Good Luck to all participants!!!!
