Judson Sends 30 To TMEA Choir Clinic

Judson High School hosted the TMEA Region 11 Honor Choir Clinic and Concert recently and it was a great experience for some wonderful singers.  These students were selected from schools all across San Antonio to work with Dr. Joey Martin of Texas State University, Dr. Gary Mabry of UTSA and Dr. Ryan Garrison of the Children's Chorus of San Antonio. 30 Judson High School students were selected for this great honor and it resulted in some fantastic music.  

Rocket Band Finishes Strong Contest Season

 

The Judson High School Rocket Marching Band is a quality group of student musicians who have worked hard this fall.  That work is not just in rehearsals for football game halftime shows...in fact that's still going on.  But this has also been marching band contest season where high school marching bands across the state and country compete in a mix of musical and marching precision skills.  Quite possibly the most successful marching season yet for Judson High School. Take a look below. Many thanks to the band parents and congratulations to these students and Judson Director of Bands Mr. Jeffrey Keyes.
