The school has 246 students and is classified as 3A in UIL Region 13. Their director is Charles Fricker and this is the 4th year I have done their show.
Their show is entitled The Vampire Hunter and it is by Luke McMillan. It is in three movements and features Toccata and Fugue by Bach, Night on Bald Mountain, Hall of the Mountain King, Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, Swan Lake, Dies Irae, Requiem, and Funeral March.
