The Natalia Mustang Band kicked off its 2018 marching season last Wednesday, July 25. The band is preparing for another record breaking year with their marching show entitled, “In Three Words,” a Gary P. Gilroy production. Students have been working fundamentals as well as sectional work this week and will begin learning the show drill on August 1.
The Natalia Marching Band will compete in several contests throughout the Fall, including the East Central Marching Contest, Cotulla Cowboy Round-Up, and of course the UIL Region 11 Marching Contest. The band is preparing for their fifth consecutive 1st division in the UIL Region 11 Contest.
Head Director Sergio Mendez gives his thoughts on the upcoming year. “This year we are seeing another outstanding Natalia band. I am looking forward to seeing how far this band can go.”
The first marching performance for the Natalia Mustang Band will be on Friday, August 31 at Mustang Stadium.
