  • Solo and Ensemble season is upon us! 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. Help is available during the band classes and around sectionals. Please communicate with your student to determine if help is needed or not. Students must communicate with directors to setup a time to work together.
  • Percussion Ensemble rehearsals continue this week!
