TWIGEB – Week of October 4, 2021

Hello Golden Eagle Band Family,

Congratulations to the GEB on representing the Eagles well in our first marching competition in 23 months! After lightning delays, a prelims performance, and a finals performance under the lights, the GEB came in 5th place at the Plano East Marching Invitational. After looking at the numbers from prelims and finals, I’m excited to announce that we moved up from 6th place in prelims to 5th place in finals! Through all the things that were going on yesterday, we managed to have a measurably better show at the end of the day than what we first presented in the afternoon. Congratulations, and thank you to all who made yesterday such a huge win for the Golden Eagle Band!

Varsity Football Game RHS @ Berkner (Wildcat/Ram Stadium) – 7:00pm Kickoff

Game 6 will be our last Thursday game of the season across town against Berkner. After that night, RISD has a 4 day weekend for students. However, don’t forget to make your weekend plans to where you will be available for the Special Marching Band Rehearsal Monday morning to get ready for UIL. (See below…)

Special Marching Band Rehearsal – 8:30-11:30am

The weekend before UIL Region 20 Marching Contest, there is no school on Friday and Monday. In addition, on the day of UIL, there will be a PSAT administration on campus that includes many band students. Therefore, we can’t rehearse Wednesday morning on the day of UIL. Because of these rehearsal constraints, we have a special morning marching rehearsal on Monday, October 11. There is no school this day, but this rehearsal is required and it is an integral part of our success at UIL.

Note: This is not a change to the original published calendar from last May. I simply want to draw your attention to this date because of the circumstances surrounding it.

Region 20 UIL Marching Evaluation

UIL is the governing body for all fine arts in the state of Texas. Every band program goes to UIL to be evaluated in marching band and concert band each year. This is sort of like the STAAR test for fine arts groups in that we are measured against a standard curriculum requirement. The RHS Golden Eagle Band has a long history of Superior Ratings at UIL, and we look to continue that tradition on UIL day! Click HERE for the full itinerary.

Duncanville Marching Invitational

Our next regional competition will take place at Duncanville High School. This contest has twice as many bands in competition as the number who competed at Plano East Marching Invitational. Plan on a full day of activities, and the full itinerary will be posted after UIL.

Let’s make it a great week!

Mr. Bronson
