Congratulations to All Region Band Members (Info sheets attached)


This past Saturday we had 42 students audition to be a part of the TMEA Region 26 MS Region Band. Membership in this group is the highest distinction a student can earn in Middle School Band.

We were lucky to have 32 students place in the Region Band. Some of these students even placed high enough to earn membership into the Region Orchestra, where they will combine with the string players in the Region to give an amazing concert separate of the Region Band.

We are very proud of our students! In fact, The Cedar Valley Band program had the 2nd highest number of musicians selected! The students who placed will be listed below. Please congratulate them when you see them.
