NBHS Band advances to Area Finals, places 10th

band places 10th in area finals

The Mighty Unicorn Band recently competed at the UIL Area D Marching Competition on Oct. 30 in Round Rock and finished in 10th place after a full day of competition. 

The day started early and included a send-off parade from the school parking. The band performed in the preliminary round at 1 p.m. At 5:30 p.m., they were notified they had advanced to the finals. 

Later that evening, they performed in the finals against some outstanding bands competing for a spot to advance to state. A little past 11 p.m., they were given the results of the day and placed 10th. Only the top 5 bands advance to state.

“While I’ve always been proud of my students and their accomplishments, this day was without question one of the highlights of my 22 years in music education,” said David Eckert, NBHS Director of Bands. “The Unicorn Band performed their hearts out and had two absolutely brilliant performances. Watching these young people work has been an absolute joy, and no ranking or rating can change how truly proud we are of them.”
