This spring the Mighty Hawk Band Wind Ensemble’s UIL performance recording was successful in the Texas Music Educators Association 5A Honor Band Contest. The recording was played for a panel of judges at the Region Listening Session at North Mesquite High School in June and was awarded 1st Place, advancing it to the Area Listening Session at Keller High School. At this level of contest a different judging panel ranked the RHHS Wind Ensemble 2nd Place in their Area, advancing the recording to the TMEA Honor Band State Listening Panel.
The Rockwall Heath High School Wind Ensemble placed 10th in out of 250 5A high schools from across the state of Texas. Their performance included Army of the Nile by Kenneth Alford, Rest by Frank Ticheli and two movements from Vittorio Giannani’s Symphony No. 3. Congratulations to Dr. Andrew Lee Tucker, The Mighty Hawk Band Assistant Directors and the members of the Mighty Hawk Band on this outstanding accomplishment!
