Jenison Band Invitational

The Jenison Band is a consistent state contender (and champion) in the State of Michigan. Of course, the annual Jenison Invitational occurred on the coldest night of the month. While I only attended the very last exhibition as the competition ended, I was blown away (again) by another group of hardworking students from Jenison High School. As hosts, these kids (and their super dedicated parents) spent the entire day at the school, starting before the sun even came up. They helped other competing schools be in the right place at the right time, and were still there at 10:30 when I left after the awards. It was a fun yet cold experience and a new challenge to try and capture some shots from the stands.
