The band piled into the bus as they headed out for their Wind & Symphonic competition and recording last Saturday. The competition was part of the yearly band trip, this time to San Antonio and Six Flags.
On Friday and Saturday, bands from across the state of Texas competed in the Director’s Choice Alamo Showcase of Music in San Antonio.

For the first time ever, both of Calallen’s concert bands competed in this prestigious event.

The Symphonic Band under the direction of assistant band director Nic Goodman received a Superior Performance Trophy, a Superior rating from all 3 judges, and a Best band in class trophy.

The Wind Band under the direction of band director Jeffery Valperts received a Superior Performance Trophy, a Best Band in Class trophy, and a Best Overall Band award in entire contest.

Three soloists from the Calallen Wind Ensemble were named as outstanding soloists in the contest.

The band will be competing in Honor Band Competition this year against all other 5A Varsity Bands in Texas.

“[We] are very proud of the accomplishments of our outstanding band students this year. It has been one of the most successful years in Calallen Band History,” Valperts said.

The directors would like to thank everyone for their fantastic support!
