GHS band second at USBands Showcase

The Granbury High Pirate Band placed second with its “Angelum: Light and Dark” marching show at the USBands Showcase Saturday at Burleson Stadium. The group also took home an award for best visual effects. The band will next compete at the DeSoto Marching Classic on Saturday. Both the USBands and the DeSoto events are precursors to the UIL regional competition Saturday, Oct. 20, at Burleson Stadium. The Granbury band will be among numerous Class 4A and 5A schools competing. Since it is an odd-numbered year, the 4A bands do not have an opportunity to advance to area and state this year.
