In addition to preparing for UIL, we need our students diligently preparing for Solo and Ensemble (UIL-Feb. 8th, CFHS-Feb. 22nd) Students should be able to play top to bottom on their solos by now, if not, they must catch up as they are behind. Funds for the piano accompanist are due on the first rehearsal date (scheduled later). The cost of a class 2/3 solo is $25 and $35 for a class 1.
  • Mr. Moreno will be contacting students that have past due band fees. If you have any outstanding fees, please feel free to contact Mr. Moreno.
  • The Wind Ensemble Side by Side rehearsal was a TREMENDOUS success. Our students represented our program well and all had a great time! Many of the 8th graders came and told me they LOVE our high school band students. Thank you all for your sacrifice to make this fun for our incoming 8th grade students. The Symphonic Band will do a side by side with the Seabrook 2nd band on Wednesday February 5th 3:30-5:30 at Seabrook. We will bus the students to the school. Please bring a snack for this event.
