The Durham Intermediate School Dragon Band traveled to Sandy Lake Amusement Park in Carrollton to compete in the 41stAnnual Band Fun-Fest on April 29.
The students worked very hard, both during class and at after school rehearsals, to prepare for the event. Bands at Fun-Fest perform for three nationally recognized judges, and are rated as I (Superior), II (Excellent) or III (Good).
The DIS Dragon Band performed two selections for the judges, had lunch in the park, and then attended the awards ceremony. The band was rated as Superior by all three judges.
The DIS Dragon Band is under the direction of Michael Oglesby, Nick Thomas, and Sara Gustafson.
