Number One Band
The Killian senior high bands are known locally, state wide, and nationally. This year alone at district evaluation for marching band, was rated straight superiors. this was the fourteenth year that the Marching Cougar band was rated with straight superiors. Along with the marching band was superior with distinction for Drum majors, which that was my proudest award to receive. And along with the superior with distinction we were rated best in class Woodwinds, Brass, and Percussion. The color guard, which is part of the band family as we know it, also was rated straight superiors.
And then concert season came around and first up was The Miami Killian Senior High School Concert Jazz Band. At a district level was rated with straight superiors, and at a state level was rated overall superior. then along with the Jazz band was six soloist and one ensemble. All being rated with straight superiors at the district level. And at the state level was two superiors, four excellent, and one excellent ensemble. All which were the best ratings. Then the Killian Wind Ensemble went to districts and was rated straight superiors for the sixteenth year in a row. And on April 28th the Wind Ensemble is going to be rated at state level. Mr. John Bixby, director of bands at Killian High School, said, "Only time will tell what is to become of the Wind Ensemble."
