The Tiger Pride Marching Band is growing little by little with an astonishing number of 94 marchers under the direction of Mr. Depanicis. The band has recently acquired several new marchers this year allowing the band able to do bigger and better things.

When asked to describe the band in five or fewer words Depanicis said they are “small but mighty.” Depanicis said that kids wanting to try marching band should try it because it is fun once you get past all the hard work of band camp which is when the band learns the music and drills. New music is picked by Depanicis, Mrs. Johnston, the majorette advisor, and Mrs. Williams, the flagline advisor. Together they decide on a theme for the music.

Depanicis was asked what his goals are for the band, and he said he would like to see over 100 band members and take the band to Disney World to perform. Though Depanicis’s goal is to continue to increase the band numbers, it is losing about 15 seniors this year.  

When asked how the band can improve, he responded with, “I would like to see kids practice more outside of school because it will improve their playing.” He wants band members to work on sight reading more because it is challenging.

The band certainly is continuing to improve and do great things and all of its hard work can be seen during Friday night football games during the fall.
