Metzger MS Band Gives Pops Concert

For some it may be a little early in the year for school concerts...especially at the middle school level. However, Metzger's Honor Band students treated their parents to a concert of some of the student's favorite pieces.  In the process, the parents were able to see and hear how much these student musicians have progressed over their time in middle school. A big thank you should go out to Mr. Aynes and Mr. Robertson for this event and the fantastic work they are doing with these students and all in the band program. 


Wagner Drum Line Shows Community Support

Community support from local businesses and residents is essential, but it can go both ways.  The Wagner High School drumline was invited to add some energy and support to a grand opening of a local business.  The event really took off once the percussion group marched in and through the crowd.  Band Director Jeremy Chapman along with the Kirby Fire Department and company officials all participated in the ribbon cutting that formally opened everything.  


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.
