41 band, choir and orchestra students from Legend travelled to downtown Denver on Monday the 13th to represent our school in the Colorado Continental League music festival. Students auditioned for the group at the end of October and beginning of November to earn their seats, and were notified in early November about acceptance.

Each group had two two hour rehearsals and one five hour rehearsal where all of the groups were at Highlands Ranch High School together. On Monday, each group had a two hour rehearsal before the concert along with a combined half hour rehearsal.

“When your group wasn’t rehearsing, you could go walk around downtown with a group,” junior Hallie Kimbrel, a member of the honor band, said. “My group went to a candy store and walked around 16th Street Mall. It was really fun.”

Each group performed three pieces by themselves, and came together to perform a rendition of America, The Beautiful. Overall, the concert lasted two hours. The concert was held at Boettcher Hall in the Denver Center for Performing Arts.
