On Saturday, November 4th, 52 members of the Cedar Valley Band tryout for spots in the Region Band and Region Orchestra. This is the culmination of 3 months of hard work where students had to place in the top 10% of all band students in Round Rock ISD, Georgetown ISD, Pflugerville ISD, Manor ISD and Hutto ISD. The lucky handful that finished on top of their sections (top 2%) earned spots in Region Orchestra.
