Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!

Congratulations to the Birdville High School Wind Ensemble on a fabulous performance at the Directors Choice Showcase of Music at the Murchison Performing Arts Center this past Saturday. The performance was a very special one that I’ll remember for a very long time. I am very proud to say that the Wind Ensemble received Superior Ratings from all three judges, was selected as the outstanding band in our class, and also selected as the Grand Champion of the Festival. Way to go guys! J
