Perry High Marching Band Wins Competition Award

Perry High Marching Band Wins Competition Award


Houston County band programs were well represented this past weekend at the Sound of Silver Invitational Band Competition. 

On Saturday, Warner Robins High and Perry High claimed the top two positions out of 20+ bands from middle and South Georgia. 

According to Perry Primary Principal Elgin Mayfield, “I can tell you as a former band director how difficult it is to win ANY marching competition.  It is unreal for one system to have the top two spots in any contest weekend, let alone at the same competition!  We are fortunate to have such talented and hard working band directors in our county!”
