UHS Goes to Work at UIL Solo and Ensemble
Posted on 02/29/2016

This year has been the most successful year at UIL Solo and Ensemble for University High School in at least 15 years or more! Thank you for your support and for an administrative team that shows how much they care and support our Band Programs and Fine Arts! As we get better results at Solo and Ensemble, our students show improvement individually as musicians. They also become excited young lovers of music acknowledging what music can do for them in their high school as well as professional careers.

UIL Results:

  • 24 Advanced to State in May including four memorized Advance Solos!
  • 43 total entries earned the highest ratings you can make
  • 21 entries earned excellent ratings

Hosting

To put the icing on the cake, we did a heck of a job hosting the event with entire band staffs from CCMS, Tennyson, and Carver helping host as well as 30 or more of our students and band booster doing the same with rave reviews from directors in our region (one of the largest regions in Texas) about our facilities and how respectful and helpful our students and helpers were. This was all done with a huge event taking place at the same time across campus flawlessly orchestrated by Mr. Carpenter.

Thank you Mrs. Bitterlin for getting the monitor's and runner's schedules together as well as organizing all the major behind the scenes rooms and logistics that had to be taken care of in order to make everything run smoothly. Thank you Mr. Oliva for ordering the food and doing whatever Mrs. Bitterlin needed you to do to make this event a success. Our custodial staff was also one step ahead of us taking care of the facility during the entire event with around 2,000 foreign bodies occupying our school throughout the day.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart Dr. Strange, Mr. Carpenter and Susan Ramon for being there for us every step of the way!

Pictures coming soon hopefully.
