Timpson Band Earns State Medal at Historic Performance

December 11, 2020 - Typically, the University Interscholastic League only hosts one state marching contest, and the National Association of Military Marching Bands (NAMMB) puts on a state contest for military bands. On Wednesday, December 9 in Pirates Stadium (Pine Tree HS) was the first time UIL has sanctioned the event.

At 11:51am, the Timpson Bear Band performed at the Inaugural UIL State Military Marching Band Championships. Under the field direction of Junior Drum Major Carter Ramsey, the band’s performance included:  Honey Boys on Parade by Edward Cupero, Chicago World’s Fair Centennial Celebration 1933 March by Carl Mader, The Drum Major March by JS Taylor, Battle Hymn of the Republic arranged by Fred J. Allen, and God Bless America by Jay Bocook.

With the pandemic, bands were allotted a time reduction regarding the length of the drill; however, the Timpson Band worked hard to produce a performance that embodied their tradition of pride by playing challenging music and exceeding the minimum drill time requirement. The band earned 2nd Place and each performing member received the UIL State Silver Medal.

In historic fashion, the band dawned their UIL medal during their encore performance at half-time of the Timpson Bears’ state semi-final game at Randell Reed Stadium (New Caney ISD). We are very proud of all the band has overcome and their endurance to produce an award-winning show!

Congratulations Timpson Bear Band!
