Pre-UIL (this past Monday and Wednesday)
We had some great performances and great comments from the judges to clean up before UIL next week. Thanks for all the support out there and we can’t wait to perform next week!
Percussion Solo and Ensemble (this past Thursday)
This was a smashing hit – pun intended. The kiddos performed well for our guest judge, and they were able to get a ton of great feedback. Congratulations Mr. Solis for putting this together and having it go so well!
MISD Color Guard Showcase (this past Friday)
I love events like these. The Cadet, Pearl, and Onyx guard represented well! Thank you to Will Ludlow, Jeremy Troche, and Mansfield HS for hosting this. Thank you for making it out if you were able to. The more we do things like this, the better all our kids will be. Go MISD!
Cross Timbers Recruitment (this past Friday)
The Wind Symphony trombone section took the show on the road and went down to Cross Timbers to recruit the 5th grade future Jaguars into band. They did an excellent job representing the entire band program and played well. Way to go trombones!
Varsity Winter Guard (this past Saturday)
This was incredible! A SUMMIT SWEEP! JV last week, now varsity this week. Congratulations to Sam Sorensen and Cam Hewelt on an incredible season! Shoutout to senior Cia Hernandez who not only made me cry during her performance, but the movement judge told us she was one of his favorite performers out of the day. Thank you again JV guard and floor crew for helping make this a great day!
MISD Symphony Orchestra (this past Saturday)
A huge shoutout to our students who took part in the inaugural MISD Symphony Orchestra. Way to represent Summit HS on that stage!
