On Saturday, October 24, the Mansfield Legacy High School Bronco Band advanced out of the Area UIL Marching Band competition and is heading to the state contest. This accomplishment represents the first such UIL state marching band advancement for the Mansfield ISD.
The 186-member Bronco Band takes its show entitled “Signal to Noise,” which according to Director Mr. Glenn Fugett, is about the use of electronics and the evolution of the orchestra.
“The band had two terrific performances,” said Fugett. “I am especially pleased with how well they are playing. The students have so much determination. They love what they are doing and they believe in the show.”
The LHS band advanced to the UIL Area competition following a great effort along with a select group of fellow 4A schools including the Mansfield Timberview Wolf Band which also competed over the weekend. (Watch the Wolf Band's show from the UIL Area Competition.)
Congratulations to these bands and supporters on jobs well done.
