Winter Indoor Color Guard 2020-2021

In a “normal” year, the MNHS Winter Guard would be competing in school gyms across they tri-state area. The students and staff took advantage of a bad situation and instead have submitted a video for competition to World Guard International (WGI). The show will now be seen nationwide on the FloMarching Channel broadcast of WGI competitions. In addition, you now have the opportunity to see the culmination of all the hard work that went into this year’s show.

This year’s show “Uncaged” was inspired by the Maya Angelou poem, Caged Bird. The words of the poem begin the show followed by arrangements of Verdi’s Requiem and Stravinsky’s Firebird. Instead of a gym, this year the group performed on the stage and was able to use the stage lighting to enhance their show.

I want to acknowledge the hard work of the all of the students: Mary Benko, Shawn Cooper, Marissa D’Ambrosio, Hailey Hoang, Kerri Naughton, and Katie Petersen.

I also want to acknowledge the staff who choreographed and designed the show: Matt Hurley, Isaiah Norman, and Jonathan Marrero.
