(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- The LRHS color guard and drumline will perform several original pieces that they created at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the school auditorium.
The pieces for the color guard will consist of flying weapons, flag technique, twirling batons, pom, and dance. The drumline will show off their impressive stick tricks and amazing formations as they exhibit their creative beats.
The color guard will have five performances. There is one for freshmen, juniors and seniors, and two for sophomores. The drumline will also have five performances. There will also be two solos performed by juniors Lily Sutton and Mackenzie Brielmann.
Sophomore Kenzie Horner is excited to display her skill. “We love to show off our skills and technique to family and friends, because it can help recruit middle schoolers and others interested in color guard,” said Horner.
