Section 1A Large Group Music Contest March 17
High School Band Shows Well at Large Group Music Contest
The Houston High School Band participated in the Section 1A Large Group Music Contest on Tuesday, March 17 at Fillmore Central Schools in Harmony. The Band gave a very good performance playing On A Hymning of Philip Bliss and Dedicatory Overture.  Both pieces are on the Approved List of pieces for Contest Performance.  
Band Conductor, Mr. Paul Grupe, reports, "Many nice comments were given from the three judges and some constructive criticisms as well.  The Band received Kudos for their great sound, rhythmic integrity, choice of music and how well they played together.  One judge also commented how great it was to see a good-sized band from our size of high school and also to have such a full variety of instruments."
The band received three excellent ratings for the day.  Excellent ratings are given when the band or choir scores 28-34 out of 40 possible from each judge. The students will now turn their attentions to finishing their preparations for Solo and Ensemble Contest in April.
