SUMMER BAND CAMP

August 3-6, August 10-13 from 9 am to 12 pm

If you have any questions, please let one of the directors know. 









On Saturday May 2nd we took all three of our advanced bands to the Alamo Showcase of Music in San Antonio. 

As you can see from the picture above, they were incredibly successful! All bands received a ratings trophy for their Superior performances. Each band also won the best in class trophy, beating out the other bands in their category. And finally the Honors Band won the OUTSTANDING OVERALL trophy for being chosen the best of all the bands that performed that weekend.

This caps off the MOST SUCCESSFUL year in the Cedar Valley Middle School Band program EVER! We are so proud of our band students! 




On Saturday, May 2nd, the advanced band members performed in the RRISD Solo & Ensemble Festival. Students played solos and ensembles for judges. They were then awarded a score of 1 to 5, the first of which is the highest score. Additionally select students were awarded the title of Outstanding Performer.

We had 89 events awarded a 1 on their solo/ensemble. Their names are listed below. Additionally, of those students 33 were given the Outstanding Performer award. They are also listed below. Some students are listed twice because they earned this award for their Solo AND their ensemble!

We are very proud of these students! They worked hard and earned several medals for CeVMS.
