Marching band season is underway and parents and the community have two opportunities to view their local marching band programs at their best.

The Marching Band Festival is open to bands assigned to Region 11 and is the critique session to assist directors in preparing bands for the UIL competition. The public is invited to attend. Tickets at the gate are $2. (It is free for NISD employees with their ID.)

“This is a great way for the general public can view the outstanding performances of our local band students,” said James Miculka, director of Fine Arts programs in NISD. “We hope they will come out and support these young musicians.”
