Dear Students, Families, and Supporters,
We are proud to announce that our Wind Ensemble made superior ratings at UIL Concert & Sightreading Contest! All three ensembles received superior ratings in their stage performances and sight reading performances. We received a “program sweepstakes” award for receiving superior ratings at UIL Marching Contest and UIL Concert and Sightreading. We are very proud of the hard work that went into this wonderful year!
HONOR BAND PROCESS
The Wind Ensemble will continue to work on their UIL literature in order to prepare for their TMEA Honor Band recording. This is a competitive contest in which our varsity ensemble is compared to other ensembles in the area and ranked accordingly. Thus, the Wind Ensemble will continue after school activities for the remainder of the school year. Three recording sessions/concerts are scheduled for the month of May. Please look at our calendar for more details.
Parents - Please do not schedule vacations beginning July 25th, through the beginning of school. That block of the summer will be used for marching band camp and must be attended by those wishing to be considered for a spot in the competitive marching program. We will have our first marching rehearsal on Friday, April 29th.
