- Wando High School Marching Band
This week, the Wando High School Marching Band won the South Carolina Class 5A State Championships for the sixth year in a row. The band is under the direction of Scott Rush, and assisted by Sean McGrew and Lanie Radecke. The band performed their production of Turn (based on pieces by Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff) at Irmo High School on Sat. Nov. 6.
Last year, the full-scale band made its way to the finals in the Bands of America Grand National Championships in Indianapolis, Ind., performing in the Lucas Oil Stadium. Only one other S.C. marching band has ever achieved such a feat. Visit wandobands.org for more.
