The Oak Forest Elementary Big Bang Percussion Ensemble has been chosen to perform at the Texas Music Educators Association Convention and Clinic in San Antonio on Feb. 16. Oak Forest is one of the only eight elementary groups in the state selected to perform at the state conference.
The Big Bang began in 2015 with 11 members and a few drums. After applying for and receiving a grant from the Humble ISD Education Foundation, Jenni Olges, Oak Forest music director, was able to purchase additional instruments and involve more students.
Recently the Big Bang was featured as the February Inspiring Moment at the Feb. 13 School Board meeting.
