On Tuesday, September 27th the Atlanta High School and Middle School Drumlines competed in the Fire Ant Classic Drumline Competition.  For many of these middle schoolers, simply carrying their drum is a superhuman feat, but they managed to demonstrate playing ability and discipline beyond their years. The Middle School Drumline represented Atlanta with 9 basses, 4 snares and 3 tenors. They placed 2nd in the Middle School category and we are extremely proud of their performance!  The High School Drumline continued to demonstrate the highest level of excellence in musical performance as they received awards for Outstanding Bass Line (a first for AHS) and Outstanding Front Ensemble (3rd year straight). As the AHS drumline continues to grow, we look forward to future successes at ever greater competitive venues. The Drumline will have their final independent competition in November at Flower Mound Marcus for the Lonestar Classic Drumline Competition. We look forward to their continued success and excellence.
