Thursday afternoon, February 6th, the Wolfpack band hosted their first very own middle school solo and ensemble contest. This contest was primarily for the middle school students. However, the high school ensembles and a few high school soloists performed to get geared up for their performances Saturday, February 8th. The results from the middle school contest were outstanding. The middle school band students earned 24 first division solo medals and 27 first division ensemble medals for a total of 51 total medals Thursday evening.
The high school students participated in the Region 21 UIL solo and ensemble contest at SFA on Saturday, February 8th. Their performance was also quite impressive. The high school participants earned a total of 10 first division medals on Saturday. Of the 10 medals earned, 6 are for solo and 4 for ensemble. The 6 soloists to earn first division medals are Kayla Avila, Jairyle Josue, Tony Nguyen, Carlos Johnson, Juan Rubio, and Christian Haynie. The 4 ensemble members who earned first division medals are Jairyle Josue, Jenny Nguyen, I'Tyria Garrett, and Emily Lester. These young ladies also earned the opportunity to compete at the Texas State Solo and Ensemble Contest to be held in May in Austin.
The San Augustine Wolfpack Band represented our district very well at solo and ensemble competitions this past week! Congratulations to everyone and many thanks to those who helped make the local solo and ensemble contest a success.
