For the third year, the AlumKnights supplied volunteers in support of the DNHS band’s participation in the New Mexico Pageant of Bands (POB) marching band competition on Saturday, October 17, 2015 at Wilson Stadium. AlumKnight volunteers included Terri Christiansen, Eric Gray, Ann Johnson, Dan Jones, Krista Martinez, Janet Saiers and Mike Tandysh.
The Del Norte Band is one of the ten APS POB Member Bands that produce this all-volunteer event that attracted 29 bands and over 2,000 band members from across the state. A portion of the proceeds are disbursed to the POB Member Bands based on volunteer participation. Last year, the DNHS band received about $500 in this disbursement.
The Phantom Knight Marching Band won 1st place overall for Class A Bands at the Pageant of the Bands. Del Norte also got 1st place in drum major, color guard and woodwinds. Way to go Knights!
