December 15, 2014 - This weekend, 10 Tenaha middle school band students and 2 Tenaha high school band students traveled to Rusk, TX and competed for the chance to earn a chair in the Region 21 ATSSB All-Region Band. The Tenaha band students competed against the most talented band students from other 1A-4A schools in this region. All of the Tenaha band students worked hard over several months to prepare audition music for this competition. Each students competed on his or her individual instrument as opposed to competing as an ensemble or group. Those that made the band will perform in kind of an "all-star" band that will practice together for one day and then will perform a concert that same night in Chapel Hill on January 17, 2015. The following students from Tenaha made the band:
Middle School Region Band Results:
Jared Tovar: 6th Chair baritone in the Middle School Symphonic Band (Top Band)
Jaurmez Brock: 1st Chair trumpet in the Middle School Concert Band
Cooper Ward: 2nd Chair tuba in the Middle School Concert Band
High School Region Band Results:
Jacob Samford: 4th chair trombone in the High School Symphonic Band and also advanced to area competition. Jacob will audition on January 10, 2015 to earn a chance for a chair in the All-State band!
Congrats to all of these very talented students!
