The GCHS WInd Ensemble traveled to Miami on Friday May 3rd to perform for the Florida Bandmasters Association State Concert Band MPA. The Wind Ensemble did an incredible job and received Straight Superior Ratings!! They also received the Otto Kraashaur award which is only given to bands that earn straight superior ratings at Marching Band MPA, District Concert Band MPA, and State Concert Band MPA. This is the first time in the history of Gulf Coast High School that we have received this rating and award. (Next time you are in the band room, take a look at the Otto Kraashaur Award Plaque hanging on the wall) This is a really big deal and I can’t tell you how proud I am of our students for all of their hard work and dedication to the Shark Band!
