TA Howard Honor Band Goes to State Competition
Posted 07/31/2017 09:59AM
TA Howard’s Honor Band's recording advanced to the State level of the TMEA Honor Band competition for the 5th time in 10 years. They placed first out of the top seven bands that advanced from the Regional level.
UIL/TMEA realigned the Regions and Areas last year and 6 of the bands in our Area (including Howard) had made State Finals before. So advancing out of this Area was especially tough this time. Also advancing with Howard was Rice MS from Plano ISD.
The state contest was held Thursday, July 20 in San Antonio. A panel of 5 judges listened to the top 16 CCC bands in the state; the top two from each of the 8 Areas. Only one band is selected as state Honor Band champion on an every other year basis.
We are so excited that the TA Howard Honor Band received 2nd in the State of Texas competition behind 3-time Honor Band winner, Henry Middle School. This is another huge accomplishment for our great band program.
