Metzger Band A Big Part of All District and Region Bands

On Saturday, November 2, students from the Metzger Band traveled to Resnik Middle School to compete in the TMEA All-Region Band Auditions. Out of 645 students, the following students earned a chair in the prestigious TMEA All-Region Band. The 26 students were the most any school sent to the All-Region Band. Out of the 26, eight are in 7th grade and have only been playing their instruments for 14 months! They will join the other All-Region Band students from across San Antonio and surrounding communities for a concert in December at Steele High School.
