DMS Wind Ensemble Soars at State Honor Band Contest

Jul 28, 2017 07:52AM ● Published by Audrey Sellers

The DMS Wind Ensemble, comprised of 54 Dawson Middle School students, spent the summer rising up the ranks of Texas bands. The ensemble placed first at the Region and Area levels, and took home fifth place in the State Honor Band Contest.

“Our students spent countless hours in rehearsals, sectionals and individual practice to perform challenging music at the highest level. I am so proud of their achievements, and it has been my honor to guide them through this process,” says Rebecca Click, band director at Dawson Middle School. “This group has set a new standard, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for the band program.”

Judges evaluate at the Region level and recommend the top two bands from each of the 32 regions to the Area level. The top two bands from each of Texas’ eight Areas are then recommended to the State level, where they are evaluated, and one band is named the Texas State Honor Band. Out of 16 state finalists, the DMS Wind Ensemble placed fifth.
