RHS Bands Make History!

Good Morning,
Over the last three days, our concert bands have performed and competed in the Region 3 UIL Concert & Sightreading Contest at Richardson High School.  We are very proud and excited to share that all three RHS Bands earned superior ratings from the judging panel, earning the coveted Sweepstakes Award.  This is the first time in the history of the band program that all 3 bands have earned the Sweepstakes Award.
Last week the Wind Ensemble performed at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center and placed 3rd overall. Natalie Pang and Nick Messick received a certificate for outstanding soloist, and Nick Messick received a trophy for outstanding percussion soloist overall!
