Board of Supervisors to Honor James Madison HS Marching Ensemble

Fairfax County’s Board of Supervisors plans to soon laud the James Madison High School’s marching ensemble for its achievements last year.

In a joint board matter, Supervisors Walter Alcorn and Dalia Palchik, who represent the Hunter Mill and Providence districts, want to recognize the school’s marching ensemble several for “an outstanding season and historic championship.”

Called the “Pride of Vienna,” the marching ensemble won the Virginia Marching Band Cooperative State Championship in the fall for the second year in a row.

The group also won the Bands of America Regional Competition last fall.

“This victory was [the] first time a Virginia band has won a Bands of America Mid-Atlantic Regional Competition in nearly 40 years,” according to the board matter.

The group competed on the national level, ultimately becoming semi-finalists.

The Board of Supervisors voted yesterday (Tuesday) to invite the marching ensemble and the Town of Vienna to an upcoming board meeting to receive congratulations.

“I look forward to having ‘Pride of Vienna’ come here,” Palchik said.
