Additional details and/or comments from band director:

I’m very excited about this year’s group. These students have a lot of potential- great leaders, strong seniors, and excellent freshmen. Their competition show consists of very energetic and uplifting music that I’m sure that Darby audiences will enjoy. It will be fun to watch these students grow and develop through the season.
