CISD JH Band Solo & Ensemble Contest

Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, the Conroe ISD JH Band Solo & Ensemble Contest has been POSTPONED. The contest will be rescheduled to either May 1 or May 8, but the district has not finalized any new plans yet. There is a possibility of the contest site also changing. We will keep everyone posted as soon as we hear updates about the contest.


If you have already entered into the contest and have paid contest and piano accompanist fees, your payments and entries will still be valid for the new rescheduled date. Parents still needing to submit payments may still do so!


Thank you for your understanding and flexibility!

Grades

Band assignments for the 1st 3-Weeks of this semester are due on Friday for the next progress report! Please login to Canvas and Student Access Center to see if you are missing any assignments and turn them in before the due date.

Sectionals

What is a sectional?

A sectional is an instrument-specific rehearsal that takes places before or after school once a week. In these rehearsals, students will learn instrument-specific techniques and music that cannot be covered in regular band classes.


Who will be required to attend sectionals?

As of right now, only students in the Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band will be required to attend sectionals. Sectionals are an extension of our regular band classes, so it is vital that every student required to attend sectionals is present on their scheduled sectional day/time.


When will sectionals start?

Sectionals will begin on January 11, 2021.


What time will sectionals be?

Sectionals will be from 7:20AM-8:10AM.


What day is my sectional?

Tuesday - Clarinets, Bassoon, Trumpets, Horns

Wednesday - Saxophones, Trombones

Thursday - Flutes, Oboe, Euphoniums, Tubas


What if I don't have a ride?

Students, if your parent or guardian is not able to take you to sectionals due to work, no car, etc., please make every effort to see if you can get a ride from another student. Parents, if you are able and willing to give a ride to a fellow Stockton Band member that plays the same instrument as your child, it would be greatly appreciated!


Fun fact: Many years ago while they were still in school, Mr. Medrano and Mr. Wilson used to give rides to their fellow band members so that they would be able to attend sectionals!


What time will the Band Hall open and where do I get dropped off?

The Band Hall will open at 7:10AM on sectional days. See the map below on where to get dropped off.
