Jaguar Jazz Band Hits The Road For A Tour

The Judson Middle School Jaguar band program is continuing to grow in size and in the kind of music they're studying and performing. Their performances have allowed them to book a number of other gigs over the last several weeks.  First, there was the performance at the JISD Honorary Volunteer Banquet at JECA where they entertained before the ceremony started. That was in front of a lot of district officials and they did a wonderful job.  Then they came back to their home campus to perform for  Copperfield and Converse Elementary School students who will be going into 6th grade next year. Then they rounded out their tour at Judson High School where they performed at the Performing Arts Center in the foyer as those attending the annual JHS Percussion and Jazz Concert were filing in to find their seats.  Each stop was a great experience in performing and working together as a musical team.

    

Kirby MS Band Beginners Perform Like Veterans

For the first time in school history Kirby Middle School's Beginner band competed in the Texas Lutheran University band Festival hosted on the TLU campus and they did a super job! This group performed a set of three challenging pieces for this contest and was awarded the "Outstanding Muscianship Award."  That's the highest honor at the festival. That is simply amazing considering they've only been playing their instruments for about 9 months.  Congratulations to these students under the direction of Mr. Elizondo and Ms. Ascolese.

Rocket Winter Guard Going To World Contest

The Judson High School Varsity Winter Guard is a top notch group that has high expectations.  If you don't know what a Winter Guard group is, it's basically a color guard team that performs indoors.  It's a performance of precision team work and the Rocket team just got back from the Winter Guard International Houston Regional at Hightower High School and placed 2nd in the overall competition. The next step is prepping for the Winter Guard International World Championships in Dayton Ohio in April.  Judson is currently ranked 1st in the nation among all groups attending this next contest.  Good luck everyone!!
