The music students and band staff have had their heads down working hard to focus on performance. Over the past week we've had multiple things to celebrate.
First, the band students had 27 students participate in the UIL State Solo and Ensemble Competition. 9 of those students received medals for their performance including our percussion ensemble which received a Superior Rating at State and a clarinet soloist who received an Excellent Rating at State.
Second, the Mariachi Los Toros Ensemble just got back from it's UIL State Mariachi Contest. Mariachi is growing across the state of Texas, and Bridgeport was proud to represent it's district as one of the 50 schools who qualified for State contest. To qualify for State, the ensemble must receive a Superior rating at the Region Contest and then they are awarded the opportunity to compete at the State Level. The Mariachi Ensemble received an Excellent Rating at State which if put in a numerical order would have ranked them 4th in 4A.
These students represented Bridgeport ISD in an awesome way. We are so proud of their accomplishments.
