Bishop Dunne Falcon Band Finishes 2014 Year on a High Note
The 2014 Bishop Dunne Marching Falcon Band is finishing its 2014 year with a whirlwind of performances this past week from Friday and Saturday, December 5th and 6th, through today.
The final Marching Band performance was the award winning De Soto Contest: Best in Class production of "Three Kings and The Bishop Dunne Band," which delighted the crowd at the TAPPS Championship Game at Tiger Stadium in Corsicana. The band performed throughout the game to cheer the team on to victory.
Early the next day, Saturday morning, the band was back at school, preparing to leave for the Dallas Children's Health Christmas Parade. The band marched as the fourth registered band in the parade, following Grambling, The U.S. Marines, and Skyline High School.
“It was a great day, filled with happy faces, good cheer, and good music,” said Daniel Harrelson, Bishop Dunne’s Director of Bands.
The band performed in concert with the rest of the Music Department on Thursday, December 11, 2014, at 6:00 p.m. in the school’s Milam J. Joseph Auditorium. To close out their performance schedule for 2014 they will play at the school’s Football State Championship Pep Rally today at 2:00 p.m. in the Bishop Dunne Gym. Channel 8 is scheduled to present the football team with a “Team of the Year” trophy.
