The Carroll Dragon Band is getting ready for its final marching competition scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 26 in Duncanville. Students will perform in the Duncanville Marching Invitational. The preliminary round begins at 3:45 p.m. at Panther Stadium.
The band is coming off a proud performance at last weekend’s Region 24 UIL Contest held at Standridge Stadium Carrollton. For the 18th straight year, the Dragon Band earned straight “Superior” First Divisions from the 3 adjudicators, who all had great comments on the “Y-Knot” marching show. This marks the 34th time in Carroll Dragon Band history to earn a Superior Rating. Earlier this month, the Dragon Band earned a 4th place finish against 26 other bands at the Golden Triangle Classic in Denton.
Also at the Region 24 competition, students Wesley Song and Joshua Villarreal were selected to the All Region Orchestra. Wesley, a junior was selected to All Region Symphony Orchestra. Joshua, a freshman was selected to the All Region Philharmonic Orchestra. Both will participate in a clinic and concert on December 13-14 at Liberty High School in Frisco.
