Warren to host WBA So Cal Super Regional

Saturday October 27

Rather than attending the Sierra Vista Field Tournament, a unique and humbling opportunity has presented its self. After much discussion and work, we will host the Western Band Association's October 27th competition. This event is called the "So Cal Super Regional". As of right now 32 bands are signed up to perform and compete in this event. Warren has not competed in WBA in many years, but we welcome the opportunity to help WBA and even have the opportunity to compete at the event. Many details will be forthcoming over the next couple days. For the most part, hosting this event will look and feel similar to the event we hosted on October 6th. We will need all hands on deck and have much work to do in 2 short weeks. Ultimately the bulk of the help we will need simply by parents, students, friends, alumni volunteering their time. Stay tuned!

Congrats Marching Band and Color Guard!

On Saturday October 13th the WHS Band & Color Guard competed in Valencia Classic Field Tournrament on the campus of Valencia HS in Placentia. Thanks to our amazing volunteers, leadership team and students we had a very smooth day. The students were focused and prepared and gave a solid performance! As a result, Warren won sweepstakes honors in music performance, visual performance and overall top group with a score of 78.25. The percussion and color guard were both awarded 2nd place overall. 

 

Again congrats to the students and a huge thank you to all the chaperones, trailer drivers and parents, friends, alumni that came out to support. 6 more to go!
