The marching band placed third in the 29th Annual Desoto Marching Classic Competition last Saturday. The band’s show, “For Whom the Bell Tolls”, is a mix of classical pieces including “Bells for Stokowski” andRussian Christmas Music”.

 

“The marching show is a lot better this year than last year,” senior Nick Crothers said. “Everyone is enjoying it a lot more, meaning we can all try harder.”

The GEB now looks to improve further on the show with about two weeks remaining until UIL Area competition, where band members hope to advance to the UIL State competition.

“This year’s show has improved from last year because the student dedication has increased,” director Jesus Marquez said.
