The SPHS marching band finished fourth in their class at the 2018 Ayala Music in Motion Tournament on Saturday, October 14.. The band performed “Nexus,” a fusion of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” and “Chandelier” by pop star Sia.

South Pasadena scored 21.05 points for general effect, 21.95 for music, and 13.70 for visuals. The percussion section earned a score of 6.80 and color guard received 5.85 points, bringing the Tiger total to 69.35 out of 100.

“We had a really crazy past two days; getting rained out of Homecoming and having a bunch of other logistical issues,” assistant drum major junior Kenneth Schultz said. “Despite all of that, I think we gave a really good show.”

The marching band will participate in the 2018 Mission Viejo Field Show Tournament next Saturday, October 20.
