State Solo & Ensemble Process / Deadlines

Eligible students need to turn in their forms to Mrs. Gill by April 12th. If you didn’t get a form - see Mrs. Gill asap.

Found this information on the UIL Music website. (Students not responsible for entry fees UNLESS they pull out of the contest for a reason within their control - ie...they didn’t prepare and don’t want to go at the last minute for example). https://www.uiltexas.org/music/tssec


Concert Wear for all Band Students

From Mrs. Fothergill, uniform coordinator:

Students were fitted for a tuxedo (pants, jacket, and bow tie) or a black floor-length gown. If your student is wearing a gown, they will need to wear black, closed-toe shoes. If your student is wearing a tuxedo, they will need to provide their own white dress shirt, tall black socks, and solid black dress shoes. Men's white dress shirts can be found at Walmart, Target, etc. or ordered from Amazon. Your student will dress in their concert wear on April 1st, so thank you for making sure your student is prepared before that date. (Uniforms will stay at school)

Here is a link to an appropriate white dress shirt for students wearing the tuxedo:
