Happy New Year!

Bring your instrument on Tuesday!

Yes, we're playing!

Solo and Ensemble Entries due by Tuesday, January 14th

UIL Solo and Ensemble is coming up on Friday, February 21st here at Katy High School. Participating in this event is the fastest way to get letter jacket points and is a good opportunity to grow as a musician! Participation is required for varsity and very strongly encouraged for all other students.


All students have been working on a solo during November and December, so entering with your solo is the easiest option! You can also choose to form an ensemble (like a violin trio or string quartet). Talk to Ms. Lawrence if you want to be in an ensemble. If you're doing a solo and an ensemble, fill out the Google form twice.


KHOBA is paying for your entry fee. All you have to do is fill out this Google form, due Tuesday, January 14th:
