Canyon High School to be featured at prestigious UIL Wind Ensemble Festival on May 7

The Canyon High School Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Jason Adam, will be one of sixteen bands from Texas performing at the prestigious UIL State Wind Ensemble Festival on May 7 at the University of Texas-Austin.

Adopted in 2000, the UIL State Wind Ensemble Festival is unique among UIL music events. Participants get to perform in the acoustically outstanding Bates Recital Hall for a distinguished panel of evaluators including:

Jerry F. Junkin – Director of Bands at The University of Texas at Austin

James F. Keene – Professor Emeritus at The University of Illinois

Bradley N. Kent – State Director of Music at UIL/UT Austin

Timothy B. Rhea – Director of Bands at Texas A&M University

J. Eric Wilson – Director of Bands at Baylor University

In place of ratings and outstanding band awards, the evaluator panel will honor individual performers and/or sections for exemplary musical achievements. Appropriate awards (draped state medals) will be provided. Following each band’s concert performance, a clinic with a nationally recognized music educator/conductor will take place. The focus of this interaction will be on musicianship and the artistry of making music.

Each participating band will also listen to the performance of two other performing groups over the course of the day.

The performance time for the Canyon High School Wind Ensemble is tentatively scheduled for 3:15 p.m. on May 7. The State Wind Ensemble Festival is free and open to the public, and will also be streamed online at:
