In the Heights, Marching Band Style

Thanks to Lin-Manuel Miranda's tweet, I found out that the Odessa High School Marching Band performed numbers from his 2008 Tony Award winning score of the musical In the Heights at the 2011 UIL Competition.   I spent four years in this competion back in the 1980s with the Kermit High School Marching Band - three years on French Horn and one year in the rifle corps.  While we didn't compete against Odessa High (we were 3A, they are 5A), we would see them perform.  I've always loved a marching band!   And congrats to Odessa High  - they earned their 73rd straight Division 1 rating at the UIL Marching Band Contest on Saturday, October 22 at Ratliff Stadium in Odessa.
