No Band Like a D’ville Band

Few high school bands have a legacy of excellence that matches that of the Duncanville High School band. That rich history is one reason the Texas Bandmasters Association presented the Duncanville High School band program with the 2019 Exemplary Band Award. This prestigious honor recognized the program’s 40 years of excellence and is presented to one high school each year based on input from music educators throughout the state.

The Duncanville High School band has been described as the ‘gold standard’ for concert and marching bands in the state of Texas. 

A Winning Tradition

The Duncanville High School band’s winning tradition extends across four decades. The Duncanville High School Wind Ensemble was selected as the Texas Music Educators Association Region 20 Honor Band every year since 1980 and was named 5A Honor Band in 1998, 2004 and 2008. Most recently, the Wind Ensemble was chosen second runner up in the 2019 6A Honor Band Competition. 

Exhibiting the same commitment to success, Duncanville’s marching band has advanced to the UIL State Marching Competition 10 times bringing home the championship trophy in 1986, 1990 and 2002.
