UIL Recording Completed

Last Thursday, April 8, our UIL band finished their Concert & Sightreading submissions for this year. They did a wonderful job and worked hard on difficult music over the course of the last 3 months. The judges will listen to their recordings and give us a rating this week on Wednesday at 3:15pm. We will share the results with you when we know more, but whatever happens, we are incredibly proud of the work that went into this performance. You can see the "stage" performance below. This link will be deactivated on Friday due to copyright laws, so watch it while you can!
Hudson CCC Varsity UIL 2021 Stage Performance

Spring Concert

Thank you to all who gave their input on our Spring Concert Preference form.


The Spring Concert will take place on Thursday, June 3 in the auditorium at Sachse High School. Specific performance times for each band are as follows:

Beginner Band - 6:00pm

Symphonic Band - 6:45pm

Honors Band - 7:30pm

Wind Symphony - 8:15pm


Please see the specific COVID safety protocols that will be followed at THIS LINK.


Students will wear their band t-shirt with jeans or dark pants for the performance. If your student does not have their band shirt yet, please send $10 cash or check (made out to Hudson Band Boosters) to receive your shirt. 1 shirt was included with your student's Fall Band Fee. The Fall Band Fee can still be paid through Charms as well. See THIS VIDEO for details on how to complete the payment in Charms.


We will have 1-2 after school rehearsals to prepare for the Spring Concert towards the end of May. Those rehearsals will take place in the cafeteria at Hudson after school so we can have the virtual students come up and join us to prepare for the concert. All virtual students will be given a bell cover and a band mask to use for the rehearsals and the concert. We will continue to follow all COVID safety protocols.


We cannot wait to perform together! I hope you will join us on June 3 for our Spring Concerts and appreciate the incredible work our students have done throughout this challenging year. This is also the concert where we will give out our end of the year awards.

8th Grade/High School Band Auditions

All 8th grade band students will receive audition information about high school band at the end of this week. I will share all of the details as soon as I have them. The only thing I know for sure at this point is that Sachse HS auditions will take place on Saturday, May 8. More info to come!
