Middle School Bands Shine at All-Region Auditions

The BISD middle school bands recently competed for a spot in the Texas Music Educators Association - Region 28 All-Region Bands and we are delighted to recognize their success! BISD Band Directors have coached students in anticipation of this event since the beginning of summer. The students, some of which have only been playing for one year, must be able to play through three etudes for a blind panel of judges to determine who is the “best of the best” among the 32 middle schools!

Vela Middle School surpassed its own record for BISD and Region 28. Previously held at 40 musicians, the school set a new record of 41 students selected for this important honor! Also, Manzano Middle School garnered SIX first chairs (tying the school’s own previous record) and Vela, FOUR! Amazing!

The TMEA Region 28 Middle School All-Region Bands will perform at the Donna CISD Performing Arts Center on January 19, 2019.

Congratulations to these young, amazing musicians and their fantastic directors! When it comes to music, Brownsville ISD is the place to be! View the results.
