Colleyville Heritage Band

Week of 4/9 - 4/15

The first annual Mid Cities Jazz Festival was a resounding success. Our friends at Colleyville Middle School recorded for UIL and will receive their rating this upcoming week.


Our bands and guard continue to prepare for Spring performances - all during STAAR!

Every student did a fantastic job, and every student has a place in our band program.


Remember, these results are for marching band “part” assignments, as well as the band each performer will play with at the Winter Concert. We re-audition for the spring semester in November.

Graduation Plan

Details are still being worked out, but the CHHS Administration has asked for a BIG Band to perform at graduation. YAY!


With that being said, all “in person” Wind Ensemble and Symphonic members that are not Seniors, or siblings of a Senior, need to plan on performing in the graduation ceremony.


If you are a Concert Band student, or “virtual” and would like to participate in this mainly outdoor event, email Mr. Barnard.


The more, the merrier! Normalcy is coming - let’s make music together!
