NEW PALESTINE — The 73-member New Palestine High School band has marched its way to semi-state competition to be held Saturday at Pike High School in Indianapolis.
The Marching Dragons are among 80 bands across the state to make it to the semi-state level of the Indiana State School Music Association competitions. If they advance Saturday, they will compete in a state competition Nov. 2 at Lucas Oil Stadium. The New Palestine band was the only county band to advance to the semi-state this season.
Regardless of whether they advance, the Marching Dragons will perform at a separate Bands of America competition Nov. 8 at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Their show, “I.D.entity,” includes music from Phillip Glass and Imagine Dragons and celebrates the group’s new uniforms.
