If you’re a DRA student, you probably know all about our school band getting superior on their performance at Indio High School, but Marbella  and Lupita , members of band, are giving me an exclusive on how they made it to the superior title.

The performance took place at 10:00 a.m. at Indio High School. DRA’s band performed for half hour, taking home the pride of doing well on their performance. I started by asking them what does superior mean? Lupita responded, “A rating you get at festivals,” Marbella added, “It’s the best rating you can get (in a band performance).”

Clearly, these two are stars in the making, but I wanted to know what they thought when they found out they won. Marbella, on the shy side said, “I didn’t expect it.” Lupita, having more to say, stated, “Yes and no. Yes, because we worked very hard while practicing. No, because we didn’t do (that) strong on our sight performance.”

So now you know about them winning superior, but how did they win superior. I asked Lupita if there was anyone who really stole the show and won the superior for them. She jokingly said, “Mr.Flores was so good he snatched my weave. I’m bald now.”

To end the discussion, I asked Lugo what she will do now after school band won superior. Her answer was one to remember saying, “We’re still going to be working hard, but we’ve won the trophy of motivation.”

I can’t wait to see where Lupita and Marbella, and all of school band go from here.

As always, have a great day, Diamondbacks!
