The Symphonic Band is a varsity band comprised of the most musically and technically advanced 7th and 8th grade students. Membership is determined by audition, academic eligibility history, and overall performance history. The Symphonic Band performs at least seven concerts and competes in UIL Concert and Sight-Reading Evaluation, University of Houston, and additional performances. Members in the Symphonic Band are expected to participate in the TMEA All-Region tryouts and our annual solo recital. In addition, they are expected to maintain passing grades, attend all sectionals, and are strongly encouraged to participate in private lessons.
