Groveton Band receives 1st Division "Superior" Ratings at UIL

On Tueday, April 25, 2017 the Groveton High School Band traveled to Troup High School to compete in the Region 21 UIL Concert and Sight-Reading Contest.

For the concert portion of the contest, the band performed "Winchester March" by John Edmondson, "Medieval Legend" by Michel Story and "Moscow, 1941" by Brian Balmages. The band received unanimous 1st division "superior" ratings from all three judges, resulting in an overall 1st division rating.

In the sight-reading portion of the contest, the band performs a new piece of music, that neither the band members nor the director has seen or heard before contest. Groveton High School was very successful in this year's Sight-reading competition. The band received 1st division "superior" ratings from two judges and a second division "excellent" rating from one judge, resulting in an overall 1st division "superior" rating.

Congratulations to all band members for the hard work and success!
