Congratulations to the 2016-2017 Atascocita Middle School Honors Band! The Band received first place in their division at the Region Honor Band competition on June 8, which advances them to the Area Honor Band hearing competition on June 22. The Atascocita Middle School Honors Band competed against six other top band programs from the area.

 

Each band is required to submit a CD of three musical selections including both a march and two other contrasting UIL music selections from the 2016-2017 school year. The judges of the competition will listen to the recorded music and rank the bands in order.

 

“This is extremely exciting and another indication of the high quality students and supportive parents involved in the Atascocita Middle School Band program,” Cameron Wolfe, Atascocita Middle School Band Director, said.

 

The Atascocita Middle School Band is under the direction of Cameron Wolfe, Aaron Barnes, and Felicia Swindell.
