GISD All-District and TMEA Region 3 All-Region Band Auditions
Throughout the entire fall semester, our Wind Symphony students learned, practiced, and perfected their scales and music for the GISD All-District and TMEA Region 3 All-Region Band auditions. They competed twice for a spot in one of the bands and we are thrilled that we had 29 students earn a chair in the All-District and/or the All-Region Band. We are so proud of their hard work, courage during the audition, and growth throughout this entire process!
2022 YESE Beginner Solo Contest
Our Beginner Band students competed at their very first Solo Contest in May. They worked so hard for weeks to perfect their solos, practiced with a live accompanist, and performed for the judges. They represented our band program and our school so well by dressing up, clearly introducing themselves, performing well, and behaving like classy ladies and gentlemen. We are so proud of them for the courage they showed during this contest! They have bright futures in the Hudson Band!
UIL Concert & Sightreading
Both our Wind Symphony and Honors Band participated in the UIL Concert & Sightreading Evaluation in April. They worked incredibly hard on their programs and performed beautifully for the judges. The Honors Band was rewarded for their efforts with Excellent ratings on stage and Superior ratings in sightreading. Our Wind Symphony received unanimous Superior ratings from judges for both their stage performance and in sightreading, earning them the Sweepstakes award. We are so proud of all the students for their hard work in preparation for these incredible performances.
Advanced Band Solo & Ensemble Success!
Most of our Advanced Band students participated in the Solo & Ensemble contest at Austin Academy on Saturday, February 19, 2022. This the first in-person contest of this kind for ALL of them and we are SO proud of the way they prepared for this event, represented themselves and our school during the event, and the success they achieved through these performances. Everyone is a stronger musician now than when they started preparing for this contest and we couldn't be more proud! We came home with 84 first division medals, 8 second division ribbons, 15 outstanding soloist nominations, and 7 outstanding soloist winners (more than any other GISD school)! Congratulations!!!
Hudson Bands Make GISD History!
All 3 of our Advanced Bands attended the UIL Concert & Sightreading Evaluation the week of April 1, 2019. All 3 bands worked very hard to prepare their music and have practiced their sightreading skills all year long. They all had beautiful stage performances and did a wonderful job in the sightreading room. We are thrilled to say that for the first time in school history, ALL 3 HUDSON BANDS EARNED THE SWEEPSTAKES AWARD AT UIL! This is incredible and not an easy feat to accomplish. We were the only band at our entire contest who received this honor and one of only 3 bands in the entire region. We are so proud of these students and impressed with how much they have grown musically over the course of this year. Congratulations!!!
