In their final outing for the 2015-2016 competition season, the Edwardsville High School Marching Tigers were once again tops in their class at the Greater St. Louis Marching Band Festival, with awards for outstanding music and overall performance.

The top scores across all classes earned six bands, including Edwardsville, a finalist berth.  The second performance of the day saw the Marching Tigers place second in the finals, just a few points behind Fort Zumwalt North, Mo., who won prelims in their own class, earlier in the day.

"It has been another great season for the Marching Tigers," EHS Director of Bands Marvin Battle said.

"We would like to thank the dedicated musicians and auxiliary for their commitment and determination," he said. "This year saw the Marching Tigers bring home 28 awards (just three shy of their all-time record for wins in a season)."

Battle said EHS also thanks the Edwardsville Band Boosters, who are sponsoring their 23rd Annual Arts & Crafts Fair on Saturday, Nov. 14, to support the band’s financial needs. 

"Please come out to support the band . . .   and get a lot of holiday shopping done, in one day, in one place," Battle said.  

Saturday, Nov. 14   from   9:00 AM to 4:00 PM  and

Sunday, Nov. 15  from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
