Success At Marching Contest
Four Orange County bands as well as the Deweyville Pirate band turned in outstanding performances Saturday at the Region X Marching Contest.
Those performances have given them the opportunity to march at the next level.
Region X Director Nelson Nolden said he’s always proud of the band directors in his region but this year was even more special. “You know we’ve all had to adapt because of the coronavirus and it has been a challenge to every band in Texas. But our schools have also had to deal with at least two hurricanes at the same time that we’re dealing with the virus,” he said.
“And I want you to know we didn’t cut them any slack. I told our judges to judge them just like they would anywhere else or any other time,” Nolden said. “We understand the challenges but they will be on an even field when they compete against the rest of the state.”
