The Olympic Heights Mighty Lion Marching Band, under the direction of Ms. Jacqueline Parsons, took first place at The Colonial High School Marching Band Competition in Orlando, Florida on Saturday, Oct. 14.

The band made it a clean sweep in all categories of competition, including: best music, best marching. best percussion, and best color guard.

The 2017 marching band program, titled “Mangione,” is centered on musical selections by famed musician and composer Chuck Mangione. The OH bands’ program features Mangione’s compositions “Children of Sanchez,” “Feels So Good,” “Land of Make Believe,” and “Enchano.”

Making the event and the first place performance even more special was the number of former OH band members who traveled from FSU, UCF, UF, and UM to support their alma mater.

2017 Olympic Heights Mighty Lion Marching Band:

Drum Major: Pedro Fernandes

Band Captain: Sam Shulman

Guard Captain: Sabrina Feingold

Percussion Captains: Alicen Cicio and Andre Fernandes

Soloist: Elaina Berger and Michael Don
