Judson Choir Makes Big Impact At Regionals

Judson High School's Chorale students took their talents to the TMEA (Texas Music Educators Association) Region 11 Mixed Choir auditions.  Among hundreds of other choir students across San Antonio and south Texas, these Rockets really shined.  Judson placed the most singers out of the 20 other schools competing.  33 students from Judson earned a place in this prestigious group.  24 of those Judson singers were ranked in the top 10 in their respective audition room.  That means they qualify to move on to the Pre-Area competition coming in November. Congratulations everyone and good luck!

Rocket Band Flies High At Marching Contest

High school marching bands are incredibly busy this time of year with football season, practices and yes they even squeeze in marching band contests.  The Judson High School Rocket Marching Band recently participated in the Seguin Marching Band Festival...one of the preliminary competitions leading to wider scale contests.  The Rocket Band was Grand Champion (1st place overall) while also picking up Best Music, Best Color Guard and 1st place in 6-A division honors.  This is the second time in school history for the band to earn this kind of sweep at a prelims finals marching contest.  Congratulations to all these student musicians and Jeffrey Keyes, Director of Bands.

Wagner Drumline Keeps Beat At Percussion Event

The Wagner High School Drumline recently "rocked the house" at the Drum Corps International's regional event at the Alamodome.  The Wagner percussionists, along with their friends with Let Them Drum got to show their talents in the "Drumline Battle."  This pitted them against Arsenal Drum and Bugle Corps in a friendly competition of rhythm.  

The Wagner students got to kick off the big day with their Kick It In Leadership program, providing some great entertainment to get the event started off in the right way.  A big thanks to John DeNovi at Drum Corps International, Eric Hjellming at Sound Sport/Drumline Battle and Ralph Hicks at Let them Drum for providing this great opportunity.
