May 11, 2015 - The Tenaha 5th grade beginner band attended the Sound Post Music Festival in Canton this past Friday, May 8th. The band performed two pieces of music that they had prepared over a two month period. They performed above expectations for a 5th grade beginner band, and received a division 1 (superior rating) from every judge!
Some of the judges’ comments were “Great characteristic tone qualities from all students- Bravo,” “This group is musical and plays well beyond their years,” “Nice sounds, solid fundamentals, and good concert tonally-very nice!” “Good listening skills apparent.” The students received a great experience and plenty of feedback to carry them into their second year of band next year.
The band then traveled to Splash Kingdom Water Park afterwards as a reward for their hard work and incredible performance! Brian Sours, Band Director
