The Maricopa High School Marching Rams performed their 2016 field show, “Postcards,” for the last time on Saturday at the 1A and 4A Class AzMBA Championships at Perry High School in Chandler.

The Rams placed seventh in class 4A, and gave their best performance of the season, earning their highest score of the year – 70.10.

The students earned praise for their performance energy as well as for capturing the different musical styles of their show.

“This was the band’s first performance using new sousaphones and marching drums from our recent grant from the Gila River Indian Community,” said Ivan Pour, music director. “We want to send a big thank you to the Gila River Indian Community. The new instruments are making a big difference for our students.”

Pour was again voted “favorite director” in the fundraiser/voting contest at the event.

“It was a wonderful night of marching band music and a celebration of a great season,” Pour said.

The Marching Rams will perform their show music one final time as part of our Fall Music “Pass in Review” Concert in the Maricopa High School Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. on Dec.6. Admission is free. The Marching Rams will also appear in the Ak-Chin Masik Tas Parade on Dec. 10.
