WOLF PACK PRIDE MARCHING BAND
Welcome to the 2018 Season of the Wolf Pack Pride Marching Band! The show this year will be based on the Haka and promises to be enjoyable. You will hear a lot of driving drum parts as well as mastery performances by the winds, front line and color guard. You’ll see extra motion that will enhance the sound the band is looking to create. The band, directed by Mr. Carlos Aguero and Mr. Steven Quintana, and under the leadership of drum majors Austin Schattenberg, Heather Walkley and Trent Gaiser, is defending its fourth-in-state position and hopes to improve upon it this season. Thanks for supporting your Wolf Pack Pride Marching Band!
