NORWICH – The Norwich Purple Tornado Field Band wrapped up its fall season at the Syracuse Carrier Dome Sunday, finishing a respectable fourth in its division at the field band competition.
“The kids did an outstanding job with the program,” said the band’s director, Lansing Dimon.
Norwich finished behind New Hartford, Medina and East Syracuse-Minoa to secure the fourth spot with a total score of 86.55.
Dimon was not disappointed with the performance. “We told them before going on the field – the most important things ... aren’t necessarily the scores or placement but how they felt about their performance and making sure that they met their full potential,” said Dimon.
