Highlander Band In The News...

January 2017

A record 62 Highlander Band students qualified for All Region in December, and they performed Friday, January 20 in the Region 20 All-Region Concert, Symphonic, and Honor bands at Duncanville High School. This is 40% of our students and a record number for the Highlander Band. In addition to this, our region is considered the most competitive in the State and arguably the country.

All-Region is an individual contest that requires each student to learn three advanced pieces of music and perform them for a blind judging panel, competing against other students from 5A and 6A schools in our region.

Of the All-Region students, 18 also earned an Area designation, which qualified them to audition for the TMEA All-State Band on January 7.
