UIL and South Coast Music Festival Results

Congratulations to our Band Students and Directors on outstanding performances at UIL and at the South Coast Music Festival in Corpus Christi!

Last week, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, and Concert Band performed three pieces each for the UIL competition.  Here are their results:

Wind Ensemble – All 1s in Concert and Sight-reading (“Sweepstakes”)

Symphonic Band– All 1s in Concert and Sight-reading (“Sweepstakes”)

Concert Band – All 2s in Concert and 2-1-2 in Sight-reading  (A strong performance in their first UIL competition in many years!)

The students who participated in the Corpus Christi trip also performed at the South Coast Music Festival.  All three bands received a “First Division-Superior” rating.

The talent runs deep in our band program.  With about 80 incoming freshmen, there is even greater growth and more accomplishments in the future of Lake Highlands bands!
