High School Honor Band

Greetings from Angelo State!

I hope that you have had a very successful marching season thus far. As we all begin to shift gears from the end of the football season, I want to take this opportunity to let you know about a new event we are planning here at ASU. I am pleased to announce the inaugural High School Honor Band.

The Honor Band will begin on Thursday, November 30 and conclude with a concert in the afternoon of Saturday, December 2. A tentative schedule has been provided below. The guest clinician/conductor will be Randall Standridge. I am excited to have him on our campus and know that he will do wonderful work with your students. If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Standridge, please visit his website.

This event is open to all students in grades 9-12. I am asking that each student register and submit a recording of one of their All Region etudes using the QR Code on this flyer. The etude can be any one of the required etudes (ATSSB or TMEA) from this year. Before students begin playing on their recording, please instruct them to clearly state their name and school. Registrations are due by 5:00 pm on Monday, November 20 (the Monday of Thanksgiving) and result will be emailed to you no later than noon on Wednesday the 22nd.

To help offset a portion of the costs for this event, I am asking that each student pay a $25 participation fee. This fee can be paid at registration on the 30th.

See you soon!
