Recently, members of the Belton Middle School Band competed in the TMEA All-Region Auditions. This was done in a virtual format with students recording 3 scales and 2 musical studies they have been preparing since August for the competition. These were then judged anonymously and each student was ranked along with all other band students from all of the middle schools in Belton, Bryan, and College Station.
We are proud to announce that 16 of our students earned spots in the honor group! We also had one more student earn a spot as 1st Alternate as honorable mention. Please help me congratulate the following students:
From the flute section, Abigail I. placed 10th out of 26 flutes. From the clarinet section, Avery R. placed 13th out of 24 clarinets. In the saxophone section, Olivia B. placed FIRST out of 16 alto saxophones. John P. placed 6th, and Noelle D. placed 8th.
