The Gainesville High School Band, directors, and parents are very excited to have earned a FIRST DIVISION rating at the UIL Region 2 Marching Contest in Justin. The award follows an intense 3 months of band camp, early morning rehearsals, night rehearsals, as well as daily band during the school days.
Along with the first division rating, the band qualified for the Area Marching Contest on Saturday, October 29th at Collins Stadium in Denton. The performance time has yet to be determined.
The judges critiqued bands on tone (woodwind, brass, percussion), musicianship, and marching (execution and drill/integration of marching components). Based on comments from the judges, directors and band members have an array of skills to fine-tune in the coming week as they prepare for Area. Positive comments from the three judges included good tuning, balance, overall tone quality, solid marching performance, and overall good precision.
More details regarding the schedule for Area will be coming soon!
