Happy Thanksgiving Break Mighty Hawk Band!
Congratulations goes out to everyone who participated in the TMEA All Region 31 Jazz Band Clinic and Concert this past week. Both All Region Jazz Bands did an incredible job and it was so nice to see that many students representing Birdville High School at such a high level. Congratulations again on a job well done!
A very special congratulations goes out to Matthew Leeper for being ranked #3 in the entire state on Jazz Trumpet and was selected to the Texas All-State Jazz Ensemble 1, and to Brady Goar for being ranked #4 in the entire state on Jazz Alto Saxophone and being selected to the Texas All-State Jazz Ensemble 2. Both Matthew and Brady will travel to San Antonio with the Band Staff in February to the Texas Music Educators Association Convention to perform with the best of the best jazz students from all over Texas. A well-deserved shout out goes to Alexis Palacio for being ranked #3 in the state on Baritone Saxophone and is the “First Alternate” to Jazz Ensemble 2 and to Douglas Sisk who was ranked #5 in the state on Bass Trombone and is the “First Alternate” to Jazz Ensemble 2 as well.
