ELKO – The Elko High School Band of Indians brought home the gold from their performance at the Virginia International Music Festival in Norfolk last week.

Out of 26 bands, the marching band received a gold medal and the color guard was named the best in the 66th Annual NATO Parade of Nations, said band director Michael Broyles.
