Posted on 02/28/2016

On Saturday 02/27/16 forty seven of Waco High School's top band members competed in the UIL Region 8 Solo & Ensemble contest held at UHS. We are very pleased to announce that these students brought home a combined (37) Division ONE "SUPERIOR" ratings and medals, and (11) Division TWO "EXCELLENT" ratings. Most of these students perform class 1 solo's and ensembles (the absolute highest level of difficulty available) and a few perform class 2 level pieces. Only students with Division ONE ratings can qualify to advance to the Texas State Solo & Ensemble Contest held at UT Austin in May.
