Serving Denton, NC & Surrounding Communities


For the Love of the Band

By Kelly Bledsoe
Playing in a high school marching band requires long hours, patience and commitment and, above all, stamina. And that is exactly what the Marching Wildcats have. The South Davidson Marching Wildcats are off to a great start this year. So far, they have participated in one festival (Ledford Festival of Bands), where they placed second in their division while winning several trophies for various captions. South also performed with all other Davidson County marching bands at Band Night held at Central Davidson High School on October 16. The Marching Wildcats are scheduled to compete at North Iredell, East Surry, Fred T. Foard, and North Davidson this season as well.

As always you will find these high-spirited musicians at all home football games as well as in several parades in the area, including the Denton Christmas Parade. They will be also be performing at the Christmas Train Depot at Denton Farm Park on Dec. 7, and the annual Christmas concert for middle and high school bands is set for December 18 at South Davidson.

Currently several students are preparing to audition for the All-Davidson County Band and the Northwest North Carolina All-District Band. The Marching Wildcats are thankful for the support the Denton community has always provided and they are proud to represent South Davidson.
