Motivation

Shelbyville HS Band Advances to AREA

(TMEA HONOR BAND COMPETITION)

Honor Band is the highest award a concert band can receive in the state of Texas.

The purpose of honor band is twofold. Many educators believe that through the process of hearing and observing the results of quality teaching, directors can develop their own instructional skills to a higher level. In addition, selection of an honor band in each classification recognizes communities and school systems that successfully support music in education through their instrumental music programs.

Bands enter at the region level by submitting a recording of a three-selection concert program recorded at a public performance. Those bands who advance from region move on the area judging and those who advance from area are then judged at the state level.

On June 13, 2018 TMEA Region 21 held its Honor Band judging session in Lindale, Tx. The Shelbyville HS Dragon Band recordings are advancing to the AREA round of the contest.

This is the second competition this summer that the Dragon Band has advanced to area. Two of the Shelbyville HS Dragon Band’s recordings are advancing to the AREA round of the contest. “Emblem of Unity” earned 1st place in the march category, and “Brave Spirit” earned 1st place in the concert category at the region level.

Congratulations to the Dragon Band, and good luck at the next level of competition.
