band contest

The Henryetta Knight Brigade band picked up a Valentine's Day present Thursday when they received high marks at the concert band contest in Checotah. The band received excellent ratings on their prepared music competition and a superior mark on sight reading. "That made award number 141 for us," said band director Alan Montgomery. The band travels to Tulsa Sunday afternoon to perform at the Tulsa Oilers ice hocky game. Band members will be playing in the lobby before the game then will perform their "Veteran's Slute" on the ice rink before the match starts.
