Tenaha ISD Trombone Player Advances to All-State Band

January 11, 2016 - Tenaha Roarin' Band from Tigerland senior trombone player, Jacob Samford, placed 2nd at the ATSSB All-Area Band contest on Saturday, and advanced to the ATSSB All-State Band for the second consecutive year!

This is exceedingly difficult to accomplish. The student that placed ahead of him at area contest was from a 3A school (He competed against students from 1A, 2A, and 3A schools). Jacob will re-audition at state for chair placement on Feb. 10th in San Antonio, and then rehearse with the ATSSB Texas All-State Concert Band for three days with some of the most talented band students in the state!

The ATSSB All-State Bands will present a concert at the San Antonio Convention Center Lila Cockrell Theatre on Saturday, February 13th. We could not be more proud of his hard work and great personal achievement. Congrats Jacob!
