Williamsport band performs at governor's inauguration

January 20, 1999

The Williamsport High School band performed Wednesday at Gov. Parris Glendening's inauguration in Annapolis.

The inaugural showing caps a year of hard work and noteworthy performances, said Band Director Ray Chaney.

The Blue Band, which performed the "Proud Heritage March," was the only Washington County high school band at the Annapolis event, he said.

Chaney said he and the band's members were excited by the invitation.

"They're finally starting to see that the hard work leads to a reputation that leads to events like this," he said.

Williamsport's Blue Band was seeded 20th at the start of the Atlantic Coast Championship in Scranton, Pa., in November, but ranked 13th out of 25 bands at the end of the competition.

The band had been practicing for the inauguration for two weeks, Chaney said.
