In case you, the North Kitsap community, hadn’t heard; the North Kitsap High School marching band and color guard took first place Sept. 29 at the Peninsula Classic Marching Band Competition in the AAA Division.

The AAA Division is for those in the “large band” category.
The band also won “Best Music Caption” for having the highest music scores overall, according to band director Susan Peters.
The show, with music from the “Phantom of the Opera,” will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12 at North Kitsap Stadium. The show is free and open to the public.
The band’s score in an improvement over 2011, when it placed third with a score of 63.28.
The performance Oct. 12 is the annual Community Performance Night, and will be a chance for the band and color guard to practice before heading to a competition Oct. 13 in Tumwater.
