Sunday E-News (Jan 21-26)

Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!

Congratulations to all thirty students who participated in the TMEA All Region 31 bands this past weekend. They represented not only themselves, but Birdville High School and the Mighty Hawk Band at an extremely high level. All three concerts (9th Grade Band, 5A Symphonic Band, and Wind Ensemble) were great and it was awesome to hear about everyone’s experience with the clinicians. I was also happy to see how many BHS Band members stayed to watch each other’s concerts. All and all, it was a great weekend.
