Under the direction of Michael Bastone, members of the Levittown Public Schools Division Avenue High School competitive marching band recently finished off their season by performing in the Carrier Dome at Syracuse University for the 44th annual New York State Field Band Conference Championships. The band earned fifth place in the Small School 2 category with a score of 82.35.This was the highest score ever recorded by Division Avenue High School at a championship show.
The band performed their show entitled "The Twilight Zone," which portrayed the story of a two traveling musicians, Paul Giorlando and Isabel Jaime, who find their way to a hotel to spend the night. They soon find out that this is no ordinary hotel and have traveled to another dimension. The music was arranged from the original series "The Twilight Zone"and was the common melodic theme throughout the show.
Bastone, along with the rest of the marching band staff extends their congratulations to all who were involved for their dedication and perseverance.
"Without the leadership of our students, staff and the support from our parents and administration none of this would be possible," said Bastone."It was a remarkable season and we look forward to next year. Eyes with Pride!"
