Among the winners in the third division of the “Harmony” category were the “Obra Salesiana del Niño Jesús” and Cajicá Symphonic Orchestra with a score of 96.83 and 90.17 points respectively. In the same category but second division, the Tocancipá Symphonic Orchestra also stood out with a score of 92.33 points. The fourth band that participated in the first division of the “Marching Parade” category was the “Banda Musical Femenina de Marcha Colegio Clemencia Caicedo”, who received the bronze medal with a score of 64.08.
