UIL Concert and Sightreading Evaluation - postponed

We are waiting on guidance from UIL and AISD on what will happen regarding Pre-UIL and UIL.


On Monday, March 30th, we will be holding our Concert for the People in the Don T. Haynes theater at 7:00 PM. The purpose of the concert is to perform our UIL pieces for our friends and families, and especially for all the band's to hear each other's program. This is a short concert, with music only, and very little talking between pieces. The concert should be done by around 8:15-8:30 PM. Everyone is required to stay for the entire concert.


The actual UIL C&SR Evaluation will be held on Thursday, April 2nd or Friday, April 3rd. Each band's schedule is below. Parents are allowed to come to the performance and the sightreading.


Quick note that this year, UIL has instituted a new rule that eligibility does not factor into the C&SR performance for students; meaning all students will be allowed to perform regardless of grades, eligibility, etc. This is a new state-wide rule that went into effect for C&SR. Yay!
