West Orange High School Color Guard Invitational Highlights Talent

WEST ORANGE, NJ - The annual West Orange High School Color Guard Invitational, held Jan. 26, brought together some of the top competing groups in New York and New Jersey.

 

West Orange Varsity and Junior Varsity performed in exhibition as hosts of the event. 

 

The 2019 West Orange HS Varsity Color Guard show, titled "Becoming,"  features the music "Quintette No 1" by Dustin O’Halloran, "Dear Thoedosia" from Hamilton, performed by Sara Bareilles, and "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan. 

 

The 2019 West Orange HS Junior Varsity Color Guard show, titled "Beyond the Rainbow," features the music "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" performed by Katherine McPhee. 

 

The audience enjoyed a wide variety of themes, music, and performances. The WOHS Music Boosters helped with the event and food was available for purchase. A DJ entertained the enthusiastic crowd, who jumped up for several dances themselves.

 

Graduating West Orange Color Guard members were recognized, followed by the distribution of awards in several categories.
