About the Artists…

The Scorpion Sound Regiment of Farmington High School (FHS) in New Mexico boasts award-winning concert, marching and jazz bands.  The groups consistently receive high marks from judges at festivals they attend.  The high school band has grown from 40 to 60 students in the past five years under the direction of Chris Argotsinger.  During Mr. Argotsinger’s tenure with the bands, student members of the FHS band have been selected as members of the New Mexico All-State Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Concert Orchestra and Jazz Band.  The band’s motto, Dignity, Honor, Pride, is practiced by all members of the band in rehearsals and in everyday life.
