The band was simply amazing and with their efforts, qualified for the State Marching Contest, which will be held Nov. 7 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

“SO proud of this awesome group of students,” said LC-M Band Director Jose Ochoa. “Thanks to all of the people that supported us along the way and thanks to our Band Boosters that provide so much support for this group. Alamodome, here we come!”
