Markella Paradissis-Wagner – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – At Friday’s Homecoming football game the Marching Mustangs performed their 2017 show, “Dante’s Redemption,” for the first time.
They performed at halftime rather than after the game as scheduled, since the Homecoming events were cancelled due to a sudden rainfall. However, the weather cleared up to allow a fantastic performance.
The musicians are incredibly passionate about the show theme and putting their all out on the field. “Dante’s Redemption” has music based off the wind ensemble piece “The Divine Comedy” by Robert W. Smith and the video game art of Tal Peleg.
Sophomore contra player Andrew Shelton said, “No one’s first performance is perfect, but I think we did well. The music and drill are good.”
