Percussion Chamber Festival 02/20/21

The High School Percussion Chamber Festival will be on Saturday, February 20th. Please see TWIGEB email attachment for schedule. Guests will not be allowed to attend for this event due to facility restrictions (the percussion recital later in the semester will be an opportunity for guests to attend). With the possibility of bad weather next week and possible cancellation of school/rehearsals, the festival may be moved to Saturday, February 27th (same schedule). Please keep date open on your calendar just in case.

Start Gathering Concert Black Items

In order to avoid distributing concert wear (just as we did with marching uniforms), we will be wearing concert black for our Pre-UIL and UIL concerts that occur in late March/April. If you do not already own black dress clothes (i.e. black button dress shirt, black dress pants, black appropriate dresses, black long socks, black close-toed shoes), please start gathering these items. If this will cause an issue due to financial constraints, please let Mr. Marquez know ( Please have these items prior to March 31st.

Sectionals Information Reminder

Sectionals are in full session for all four bands. Please read through communication sent by primary director for schedule. Please note that in-person sectionals are required for Face-to-Face students. Virtual students have the option to attend via Zoom or Face-to-Face (in-person is preferred when possible). Failure to attend sectionals either in person or through Zoom will result in a zero.
