The Hillsboro High School Band traveled to Kansas City May 4-5. After a Saturday lunch at Brobeck’s Barbecue, the band visited the American Jazz Museum and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum before spending time at Oak Park Mall. In the evening the band attended a performance at Martin City Melodrama. On Sunday, they competed at the Worlds of Fun Festival of Music against bands from Kansas and Nebraska. The band performed two selections, “In the Shining of the Stars” by Robert Sheldon, and Larry Clark’s “The Spirit of An Eagle.” For the second year in a row, the band earned the second-place trophy.
