Kettle Run Band wins "SUPERIOR" Rating, Credits Community Support

The Kettle Run High School Marching Cougars received an overall "Superior" rating at this year’s state final marching band assessment. This is the highest marching award bestowed by the "Virginia Band and Orchestra Directors Association," or V.B.O.D.A.

Under the direction of Matt Yonkey, this is the sixth time his band has achieved this honor in the seven years that Kettle Run has been open. This year his de...dicated students, fantastic team of assistant directors and parent volunteers took it to a whole new level. Each of the seven V.B.O.D.A. judges gave their performance a “Superior” rating; a first for the band. 
 
This year's show, entitled "To Boldly Go….", was a tribute to America’s Space Program highlighting the Apollo 11 Mission; from preparation, launch, space flight and return to Earth.
 
Many in the community may not be aware of the musical quality or elaborate nature of these 'half-time' show performances. Take a look...

The band fields a new and unique show every year and marches without printed music. So every note, step and move is memorized; a process that begins with two weeks of full day practices before the start of each school year. Once school begins, rehearsals are reduced to three times per week after school, in addition to performances most Friday nights for football games.
       
Also, in preparation for each fall's V.B.O.D.A. assessment, the band performs their show in regional marching band competitions most Saturdays thru October. This year the band competed at Woodbridge, Loudoun Valley, Millbrook and Stafford high schools; earning an impressive "First Place Overall" in their class at every event.
 
The “band parents” and members of the Kettle Run High School Band Boosters Association would like to thank everyone who contributed to this year's show. Our band's tradition of superior ratings would not be possible without the countless hours of hard work by our directors and students or the generous financial support of our business sponsors and individual contributors throughout our community.
 
Your donations provide the necessary annual funding for uniforms, equipment, meals and travel costs, as only a portion of these expenses are funded in the school's budget.
    
The K.R.H.S. Band Booster Association is a 501(3)c organization. For more information or to make your tax deductible donation online, visit...
