WOW, WOW, WOW! 

Big Red Band Family I wanted to take a moment to congratulate some of our great student musicians that auditioned for the TMEA Region 33 All-Region Bands and fought for a chance to be selected as some of the top players in the region in order to advance to TMEA Area F All-State Band auditions. 

First of all, our program boasted record numbers attending the and participating in the All-Region band auditions. Over the course of Friday evening and all-day Saturday, over 40 student musicians auditioned to become a member of the All-Region bands as well as try and secure a shot at making All-State! This process is the culmination of months of hard work and the band program is extremely proud of all of our student musicians who auditioned. The following students achieved a great accomplishment this weekend:

  • All-District Status:
    • Marlon Castro, Karla Carrillo, Kenny Nguyen, Jason Tran, Da’Vion Tatum
  • All-Region Symphonic Band Status:
    • Anneliese Wyand
    • Fernando Tapia
  • All-Region Wind Ensemble and advancement to TMEA All-AREA in January:
    • Eric Mora
    • Kevin Santos
    • Josh Ito
    • Kayden Bowie
    • Daniel Cruz (1st chair)

January Fundraiser and Spring San Antonio Trip!

Our annual Spring trip will be to San Antonio, TX from April 26th through the 28th. This will include river walk tours, group dinners, an Alamo tour, two days of Sea World and Fiesta Texas, charter bus accommodations and hotel stay! The cost in total is $400 but all that is needed as a deposit is $70. Please discuss with your student the details. The biggest way to make this trip nearly FREE is to participate in our first annual snack fundraiser that will take place in January through early February. Student sales will go directly to their band fees and Spring trip fee. The students are very excited about this and not only is it entirely possible to payoff ALL remaining fees but also, make the Spring trip nearly FREE! Discuss this with your student and make sure to get your deposit in by the end of the month to lock in your place. The trip is capped at first come, first served 40 student reservations!
