e-Connections Post Rosemont

The Rosemont High School winter percussion unit won the Intermediate division championship at the Northern California Band Association’s Tournament of Champions held at Las Plumas High School in Oroville on April 6.

This championship competition pits schools from all over Northern California and western Nevada. It is the culmination of a 10-week long season of competitions.

The Rosemont percussion unit competed in five competitions during the season and brought home a trophy each time.They won first place at Del Oro, but it was their third place standing at the Elk Grove competition that gave them the motivation to work that much harder for championships.

One of the school’s seniors said “The trophy is really just a piece of plastic. We put our best show on the floor for champs and the judges recognized our hard work. That is our proudest achievement.”

Rosemont High School will host a competition in March 2014 and in 2015 will have the honor of hosting the Tournament of Champions.
