Marching Clippers Cap a Successful Season
On Saturday, September 27, the Clear Creek Amana Marching Clippers loaded the busses and the trailer and traveled north to Marion, Iowa, where the Marching Clippers performed its show “Les Miserable” featuring music from the musical with the same name. First on the agenda was the Linn Mar Festival. The band gave a very good performance on a beautiful autumn day and was rewarded for their work with second place out of nine in a very competitive 3A division.
Following the Linn Mar Festival the band jumped back on its buses and headed to Marion Stadium the home field of Marion High School and the 34th Marching Invitational. After an outstanding performance, the judges rewarded the band with an overall score of 84.9, which earned them 1st fifth straight year.In addition the Clippers gathered the 3A caption award for Best Drum Line. The Best Drum Major, Color Guard, and Horn Line were awarded to Amana.
On Saturday, October 4th, the Clear Creek Amana Marching Clippers grabbed their uniforms, flags, instruments and equipment and took to the road. The trip started in the district with the Octoberfest parade, an Amana tradition taking place in the streets of Main Amana. The high school band had a parade entry as well as our junior high band and both drew rave reviews from the crowds lining the streets of Amana. The day started out chilly and didn’t warm up much as the day progressed. After the parade the Marching Clippers headed back to the school for dinner and rehearsals in preparation for 31st Festival at Kingston Stadium. At 7:30pm, the Clippers took their performance to the field competing against thirteen other 3A schools. The band delivered a glowing evening performance under the lights of Kingston Stadium and received a score of 84.25 points, which was good enough for 2nd place in the 3A division. Clear Creek Amana Drum Majors Trevor Toy and Andrey Floryanovich were awarded Best Drum Majors in 3A. Clear Creek Amana also received the caption award for Best Color Guard.

F.A.M.E. Invites you!
The Fine Arts and Music Enhancers (Fine Arts and Music Enhancers.) group invites all interested parents in the district to join us. F.A.M.E. helps the K-12 students in the district through a fruit, meat and cheese fundraiser, serving at intermissions during musicals and plays, handing out roses to seniors at fine arts events, and assisting at solo contests, among other activities.
With the fundraiser money, we purchase special items requested by teachers in K-12 art and music, industrial arts and drama. The group recently reorganized into subcommittees of Art/Industrial Arts, Drama, Band and Choir/General Music. This way, parents can join F.A.M.E., but focus on the areas in which their children are involved.
