It was a very busy last week when the Belton MS Band had 3 performances all in the same week! Last Thursday, we had 5 students place in the TMEA All-Region Jazz Band and you can find out all of the details on our website here.
Friday, the Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble performed their UIL program for parents and judges to listen and make constructive comments for the upcoming UIL Concert & Sightreading Evaluation on March 29-30. You can watch their performance here.
On Saturday, we held our 2nd Annual Solo & Ensemble Contest here at BMS. We had over 135 events with 93 First Division Superior ratings given by the judges, 31 Second Division Excellent ratings, and 12 Third Division Average ratings. Students who earned a First Division rating will earn a medal at the End-of-Year Awards Ceremony. Students who earned a Second Division will earn a ribbon, and all students will receive their judge comments sheets back this week.
