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.

LOCKERS – You are more than welcome to use your locker from last year to store your instrument case during the camp. There are NO LOCKS, so you will not be able to leave your instruments overnight, unless you have a larger instrument, and we will decide on a case by case basis.
TUBAS – You will NEED to bring your instrument from home. We will not have enough Tubas here for you to use. Please bring your mouthpiece as well. You will be allowed to leave it here overnight.
