Entering the competing arena for the 1st time at the 2019 DCA World Championships, the Latin Express brought home the gold with a stunning score of 99.0!  Competing in the Brass Choir (+Perc) at the Friday night I&E competition, the 21 brass and 1 percussion did not disappoint with the sounds of "Espana" and "Malaguena".

The Latin Express dedicated their performance to John "Screech" Arietano (RIP 2017) long time friend and arranger for many drum corps including the featured selections for this performance.  The crowd was buzzing and the sounds of John's arrangements still "light up" an audience as fans literally came running to hear more from the first thundering chords of Malaguena!

It was truly a memorable performance, and we couldn't think of a better way to remember John!  We miss you buddy!
