Mira Mesa High band review and field tournament draws 37 schools

Mira Mesa High's 21st annual Mira Mesa Band Review and Field Tournament drew 37 bands, one of the largest band contests in Southern California, to the campus on Nov. 2 as non-stop music resonated from the field shows in the stadium, as well as the spectacular parade on the street.

Mira Mesa band "Our band director, Jeanne Christensen, leads this state ranked program," said Francisca Del Carmen-Aguilar, Mira Mesa Vice Principal. "Her inspiration has influenced thousands of students, past and present in her 23-year career as an educator.

"We were honored to have Superintendent Cindy Marten in attendance to experience the wonderful student performances. A special thanks to the students, staff, parents, and the Mira Mesa Instrumental Music Boosters for their tireless efforts as contributors to the success of the annual tournament."
