RECAP
The Claudia Taylor Johnson Marching Band swept captions in finals and preliminary performance on Saturday, winning the Bands of America South Texas Regional Championship in McAllen with a finals score of 79.80.

It was the fourth consecutive Bands of America regional or super regional win for CTJ, and the second time the band has won the McAllen event in the past four seasons.

It was the debut competition outing for CTJ’s 10th anniversary show, “Tremendous Sea of Love,” a theme which honors and remembers Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy on the 50th anniversary year of their assassinations and is a reminder of their words about love, peace, and what it means to be an American. Music in the show includes “Symphony No. 1, Op. 9” by Samuel Barber, “Lisbon Sailor’s Dance” from “Lincolnshire Posy,” “The Water Is Wide,” and “America the Beautiful,” among others.

Johnson’s finals score was more than three points ahead of Katy Seven Lakes High School (76.450). John B. Alexander High School finished third out of the 10 finals bands with a score of 76.050.

In preliminary performance, Johnson was named the Class AAAA champion, sweeping the captions for Outstanding General Effect, Outstanding Visual Performance, and Outstanding Music Performance. Since the beginning of the 2017 season, Johnson has been awarded 21 out of a possible 24 captions in Bands of America events.

Next week, CTJ will compete in the BOA Austin Regional on Saturday, Sept. 29, at Kelly Reaves Athletic Complex in Round Rock.
