Cushing ISD Band Director

Applegate, David

The Cushing Bearkat Band is a 2A organization with a roster of 50 members ranging from 8th Grade all the way up to Seniors. We march at football games, local parades, and perform multiple concerts per year. We also compete at UIL Marching Contest in October, National Association of Military Marching Bands (NAMMB) in November, as well as Concert & Sight-Reading in April.  In addition to the various group events, we provide the individual performer the opportunity to compete at UIL Solo and Ensemble Contest and also audition for ATSSB Region, Area and State bands. 

Band is a way to provide your student with an opportunity to learn teamwork and social skills as well as music.  We strive to teach all students the desire for excellence and to Make Excellence a Tradition!
