Featuring the songs “Requiem Mass in D Minor” by Mozart, Short Ride in a Fast Machine by John Adams, Masquerade by Andrew Lloyd Webber and an original piece entitled “Massive” by Christopher Bill and Alex Thode, the Pride presented their show entitled Massive. The band placed fourth overall, preceded by Frisco ISD schools Lonestar High School, Wakeland High School, and Lebanon Trail High School.
