The approximately 300 members of the Mighty Eagle Marching Band have been working diligently over the summer on a show that they previewed to the Town on Friday evening. The show title is “The Lost World” and according to Prosper High School Director of Bands, John Alstrin, it’s a mix between Avatar and The Lost Boys from folk.
“It’s a musical journey with imagery that includes 21 props to create huts and a village where 40 kids become the lost tribe,” says Alstrin. “We want the crowd to feel like they are watching a movie, a real cinematic journey.”
Every other year the band can qualify for State marching competition. This is a State year for Prosper and Alstrin feels this year they have a real chance.
“I think we are ready. We will have to qualify at region, then area, but out of the 8 areas in the State, I think we have a real shot. Our show is 8 minutes that pulls you in and makes you want to see it again,” Alstrin says.
The Prosper band will also be traveling to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis for the Bands of America competition where they will compete against 90 other programs.
“Again, this is a competition we feel we are ready to take on and we are excited to see what we can do in Indianapolis,” says Alstrin.
