Band marches to state


On November 8, band will participate in the preliminary round of the State UIL competition at the Alamodome in San Antonio. If they secure one of the top ten rankings from the preliminary round, they will get to perform in the finals on November 9. Band’s show is titled, ‘Uncharted Waters’ and is about the mystery of water.

French horn section leader Laurel Burrer is excited for the opportunity to go to state. Burrer believes that with all the preparation band has been doing for the past three months, they are ready for the competitive environment.

“If we continue to work as hard as we have been, I think I will be happy with whatever happens next week no matter what the results are,” Burrer said. “I’m already so proud of how far the show has come this year, and I can’t wait to see how much we improve with the little time we have left.”
