Congratulations to all of our Field Show Members!  22 bands that competed from all over Washington and Idaho. The bands compete in the preliminary portion of the competition within in band-size categories (A, AA, AAA, Open). Tahoma is now a solid member of the “Open Class -100+ members” category with 156 students strong this year! There are 10 judges evaluating the bands’ performances (each with a different focus area) walking around on the field with hand recorders and located up in the press box of the stadium. Tahoma won “Best Percussion” and “Best Music”.

 Tumwater Band Competition 10.14.17

Only the top 14 bands were selected to compete in the finals competition that took place in the evening.  Tahoma was one of the bands that earned an opportunity to compete in the Finals Competition! Overall out of the 22 bands that competed in prelims and finals, Tahoma earned 6 place overall (out of all bands in all categories combined). The difference between Tahoma’s 6th place at our first competition of the season and 2nd place is less than 3 points out of 100.

Tahoma had 155 students competing together (Woodwinds, Brass, Battery (drum line), front ensemble and color guard), 40 parent booster volunteers, 5 THS alumni volunteers, 1 percussion coach, 1 assistant and 1 Tahoma staff member.

To see them live in action, their next performance (and final home performance) is tonight at the Homecoming Game at the MVMS stadium! Their next competition is in one week at the Sunset Classic Festival of Bands in Sumner, WA.

Tahoma students transform utility boxes into art

October 9, 2017 Leave a comment

The Maple Valley Public Arts Commission recently completed another public arts project; enhancing the plain, green utility boxes with “Local Native American Visual Languages” themed vinyl wraps. Members of the Public Arts Commission thoroughly researched and discussed wrapping utility boxes in Maple Valley, including working through some challenges.  The City owns two of these boxes while Puget Sound Energy owns one and graciously agreed to allow the City to include it in the project so there could be a set of three and flow of design.

The Public Arts Commission wishes to thank the Tahoma Senior High School for teaming up with the City on this project. The AP 2-D Digital Graphics Arts Class students were given an assignment by Jennifer McCoy, instructor and arts enthusiast, to design the artwork based on guidelines provided by the Public Arts Commission. These highly talented students diligently researched and created designs by working collaboratively in teams. Each of the three teams presented their designs at various stages of completion to members of the Public Arts Commission and Staff Liaison who provided feedback.  The amazing designs created by each of the three teams made the selection process very difficult. The team whose artwork design selected by the Public Arts Commission to recommend to City Council attended a City Council meeting and made a professional presentation to Council members.  These designs, produced by: Pictured: Madison Shook, Katarina Zosel, Ghania Bamba, Zach Owens, Not Pictured: Madison Manning and Devin Berg,  are now wrapped onto the Electrical Boxes. Congratulations to these talented students.
