This year’s marching show “Angelum – Light and Dark” will feature music by John Rutter, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Pietro Mascagni, Ottorino Respighi, and Claude Debussy.
The band will be competing this fall at the USBands Burleson Showcase and the Birdville ISD Marching Festival prior to the UIL regional marching contest on Saturday, October 20 in Burleson. The ensemble will later participate in the Frisco Centennial Marching Festival set for early November.
