Box stated "It was great to finish the competitive season strong. We're getting better by leaps and bounds as we turn our attention to different musical areas. It is well worth having your children in this group. There's something positive for everyone in there. We would welcome more students who would like to be a part of something special. If you know of some students needing a purpose, send them to us."
