Plano ISD Drumline Montage Video

The Sounds and Sights of Plano ISD Drumlines

November is already behind us. To those of us adults, not actually doing homework, it may seem like school has just begun, but for this year's football season, marching season and the drumlines that accompany them, the sun has set. We will miss that joyous, riot of syncopated rhythms. If you have a drummer in the family or live near a high school or football stadium you hear what we mean, but you really have to see it in action to understand the power of a Plano ISD drumline. Enjoy this sounds and sights video montage, a sampling of Plano ISD drumlines. video (00:04:26)
