As a final conclusion to the season, Buffalo High School recorded their state performance of the show “Conspiracy Theory” on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2020, in front of parents and the entire high school student body. Normally the band would travel to Casper for a live performance in front of nearly 20 bands from around the state. Because of COVID-19 concerns, this live performance wasn’t an option this year and led to this recorded performance option. The band is expected to receive results back on Saturday, Oct. 17 and is hoping to obtain their 14th straight superior rating - the highest available rating.
