CPHS Gold Pride performs in Tulsa Veterans Day Parade, 3 Sandites make All-District

The Charles Page High School Gold Pride marching band participated in the 99th Annual Veterans Day Parade in downtown Tulsa on Friday, November 10th. This year's theme was "Generations of Service." 

After marching in the parade the band returned to school before loading up to travel to Midwest City to support the football team in their first round play-off game. 

The band recently ended their competition season with an "Excellent" overall rating at the OSSAA East Regional Marching Contest. Over the course of the season the Sandites also placed fourth at the Southwest Missouri Regional in Branson, and took home first prize at the Pryor Band Day.

Additionally, three band members earned First Chair honors at the Northeast Oklahoma Band Directors Association (NDBA) All-District Auditions. Kristin Shipley made the Symphonic Band for Oboe, Josh Stuckey made the Symphonic Band for Tenor Saxophone, and Jake Thompson made the Wind Ensemble for French Horn. Those three will advance to the All-State tryouts on December 2nd.
