First Chair for Kathryn

Kathryn just called from San Antonio – she made First Chair Piccolo in the State Band tryouts. Wow! Congratulations Kathryn.

She has really focused this year, and her tone and expression make the difference. Rebecca had said a couple of days ago that it was obvious that she was very comfortable with the music now because you could hear the emotion in the music.

We are so proud of her in this accomplishment, and of the way she has developed her talents in music. Now it’s just a few days till the concerts in San Antonio for both kids – State Band concert and the two Honor Band concerts.

Duncanville Band – Going to State!


After a long day in Mesquite it’s official – the Duncanville Marching Band is once again on their way to the State Marching Competition in San Antionio, Texas on November 4th. Congratulations Duncanville!

The band’s show this year is incredible – not just because Kathryn has a featured solo  and a feature with an ensemble at two different portions of the show. The overall show flows beautifully – an excellent mix of pure marching and music combined with a storyline that does not overpower the experience.

Each time they perform they get better and better. The drumline is rock solid, and the color guard ties the performance together accents the performance with an exciting splash of explosive color.

The best is still to ahead – Alamodome here we come!
