The Liberty High School Lions’ Pride marching band earned first place at the Maryland/Virginia/West Virginia Region V Championships, setting them up to head to the Atlantic Coast Championship this weekend.

The band, which came away with a score of 96.40 and awards for High Music and High Percussion, has been ranked first on the Tournament of Bands Atlantic Coast for Group 3 Open Class all season, according to a news release from Carroll County Public Schools.

The Atlantic Coast Championship will be held Sunday, Nov. 4, according to the release, and the band’s 2018 show is titled “Beneath the Surface,” according to the release.

“It’s about being your true authentic self, celebrating individuality, and pushing aside the negativity and stressors that steal our joy. It resonates deeply with students and staff, and has received extremely favorable reviews,” according to the release.

The band is under the direction of Brandi Jason, instrumental music director.

Jason was selected as a semifinalist for the 2019 Grammy Music Educator Award for the third consecutive year, according to a news release from CCPS.

This award was established to recognize current educators “who have made a significant and lasting contribution to the field of music education and who demonstrate a commitment to the broader cause of maintaining music education in the schools,” according to the release.
