A Friday afternoon with 137 high school band students in one room rarely seems like anything other than chaos.
But on command, the cacophony of voices speaking over each other, instruments tuning and equipment shifting halts for instructions to file on a bus to the last South Effingham High School Mustangs’ football game, the night before the statewide band contest that would soon cap this five-contest season as the Marching Mustangs’ most successful to date.
“Everything that we’ve been working toward, we’ve accomplished so far, and we’re gonna see if it will ultimately lead to the top goal,” Josey Jimenez, 16, said that afternoon as she and fellow senior and drum major Charlee Hogan, 17, reflected on their hopes for the last contest of their high school careers, the Georgia Marching Band Series Finals.
