Hello Kiski Nation!!!
I just wanted to invite everyone (alumni, parents, relatives, and neighbors) to the last winterguard competition of the 2014 season. TRWEA Championship will be held at Kiski Area High School this Saturday – March 29th, 2014. This is in your backyard – so I expect to see everyone there. The show starts at 1:30pm with the doors opening at 12:30pm. Your very own Kiski Area High School Percussion Ensemble and Kiski Area Winter Colorguards will be competing throughout the day.
All of our Kiski units have been working extremely hard putting the finishing touches on their shows and we need YOUR SUPPORT to cheer them on.
The show starts at 1:30 and the Kiski Percussion Open group will kick off our performances at 3:14pm. The Kiski Percussion Open ensemble just returned from a WGI Percussion Regional where they were the gold medalist in the Scholastic Concert Open Class. The ensemble will be heading to WGI Percussion Championships in April for the very first time. To help prepare them for the trip, the group will also perform their show - “As they watch over us” at the end of the evening (8:30pm) before the colorguard results are announced. If you can’t be there at 3:14pm, then be there for the 8:30pm performance.
The second part of the show will include our three winter colorguards performing throughout the evening. Performing at 4:35pm will be our very own Kiski Elementary program. This program has only been in existence for 3 years and the group continues to grow. The girls and their high school staff members have worked extremely hard these past 2 months. The girls are learning new skills and will perform their show to the music from the movie “FROZEN!”
Next up is the Kiski Area Regional A colorguard at 6:13pm. These department store clerks have been working so hard each week trying to please their “debutante shopper” but it seems they just can’t get it right. This group has the task of using over 100 pieces of equipment in their show. The amazing part – they haven’t lost one item yet. (Cross your fingers for this last week) The most remarkable part of this group is their age range – 5th to 12th graders! Even though they come from all different Kiski Area schools – they perform as a ONE! Check out their show – “All about the brand!”
And finally we have our Kiski Area Scholastic A colorguard completing the night with their performance of “Colorblind” at 7:29pm. This group of girls has done an amazing job this year. They were a finalist, where they placed third, at the Pittsburgh WGI Regional and a WGI Regional Semi-Finalist in Cincinnati. These 17 girls, along with their staff, have worked extremely hard this season and they look forward to their final performance of the year this Saturday. This is a MUST see!!!
Overall, four extremely talented groups all representing the Kiski Area School District. Just as amazing as the Kiski groups are the PARENTS, STUDENT/PARENT FLOOR CREWS, and STAFF MEMBERS that make this all possible. Without them we would not be able to host the TRWEA Championship show, have props, uniforms, instruments, equipment, and everything you see during a performance. Thanks for the incredible support!
Talking about support……..we need everyone out to Kiski Area High School for Championships this Saturday – March 29th! Wear your Kiski shirts and cheer loud for our groups on Saturday night!
See you there!!
