A couple of weeks ago I made the trip down to Indianapolis for the ISSMA State Band Finals. The Goshen News had five local bands playing. It was a long, tiring day but at the end our hometown band, the Goshen Marching Crimson placed second in Class B competition, the best of any of our local bands. Annual front runner Concord finished a disappointing fifth after what many thought was the best performance of the day. Northridge placed sixth in Class B and in Class C NorthWood placed sixth and Fairfield placed seventh.
