Recently, the 12th annual "Band Hegemony" competition was once again staged. The auditorium of Shanghai Yaozhong Puxi Middle School has been packed, and students, faculty and parents have come to cheer for our band! This year, a total of 13 bands participated in the competition, consisting of students aged 7 to 13.
This completely student-led band competition is the most exciting event of the school year to date.
