Welcome to the Plano Band

The legend grows as our Plano Wildcats take on new challenges and strive for greater heights. Every component of our fair campus is poised to pounce. Hear our hiss, see our growl, and enjoy what our Wildcats have to offer. Unlike most legends, we are not only known for what we used to do, but for what we continue to do. We will be the inspiration that inspired us to be here. This is Plano. We are legend.
