Marcellus musicians win Battle of the Bands

Congratulations to seniors Mike Clark, Sean King and Erica Ylitalo and junior Aaron Fern.
  
According to the JCC website, the concert drew more than 250 people to The Syracuse Project 4 Our Teens (SPOT), the JCC's teen center in ShoppingTown Mall in DeWitt, where six Onondaga County high school bands competed.
 
In addition to Casual Plaid, the four Marcellus students also perform with the Marcellus symphonic band, jazz band, concert choir and select choir, according to high school music teacher Brian Ackles.

"We're all best friends," Erica told a Syracuse.com reporter. "Band practice doesn't feel like practice because we're always goofing around but still getting stuff accomplished."

Casual Plaid received a $200 cash prize and a demo package from More Sound Studios that includes eight hours of studio recording time.
