That is the only word for it – spectacular. The Byrd State Honor Band concert left people in awe, and the DHS performance for the High School Honor Band concert was an incredible experience. “Angels in the Architecture” stunned the capacity crowd in the hall leaving them completely silent until the applause exploded.

Kathryn and Alex both performed beautifully. Congratulations to both of them.

First Chair for Kathryn

Kathryn just called from San Antonio – she made First Chair Piccolo in the State Band tryouts. Wow! Congratulations Kathryn.

She has really focused this year, and her tone and expression make the difference. Rebecca had said a couple of days ago that it was obvious that she was very comfortable with the music now because you could hear the emotion in the music.

We are so proud of her in this accomplishment, and of the way she has developed her talents in music. Now it’s just a few days till the concerts in San Antonio for both kids – State Band concert and the two Honor Band concerts.

Congratulations Kathryn, Alex, and the Duncanville Bands

Congratulations to both Kathryn and Alex, and to the Duncanville Wind Ensemble and Byrd Middle School Symphonic Band. Both bands made Texas State Honor Band this year and leave for San Antonio in a day to play for almost every music educator in the state of Texas at the Texas Music Educators convention.

This is a major honor, made even greater by the fact that no district has ever had both a high school and middle school band win at the same time – and only Duncanville has done this back to back.

Congratulations to the directors and the kids on this major accomplishment.
