From a Park Vista HS Press Release:
“The Art of Losing isn’t hard to master; so many things seem filled with the intent to be lost that their loss is no disaster.”
The 22 members of the Park Vista Open Guard (from Lake Worth, Florida) tackle a very personal subject to some with their 2016 program, “The Art of Losing,” which focuses on the sensitive subject of Alzheimer’s. The members represent the struggles of someone dealing with Alzheimer’s Disease, but these people are much more than their disease defines them as. They are our mothers & fathers, sons & daughters, grandparents and loved ones. Every 67 seconds, someone living in America develops Alzheimer’s disease, and the Park Vista Open Guard what’s to shed light on this important topic in today’s world.
Park Vista High School is under the direction of Nicole Darby-Ramirez. Additional staff includes Daniel Riley, Jason Ciesla, Paul Sauberer, Kristi Sexton, Pauleen Paygane. Costume design and production by Jason Kramer and Creative Costuming & Design. Floor design by Paul Sauberer with production by Digital Marching FX.
Park Vista will be competing in the Scholastic Open Class, performing locally in the South Florida Winter Guard Association (SFWGA), as well as nationally at the WGI Tampa Regional, the WGI Southeastern Color Guard Championship in Orlando, and for the first time in school history, the 2016 WGI World Championships in Ohio.
