TMEA Region Honor Band Audition Results

 TMEA Region Honor Band Audition Results

Saturday, December 4th, marked the end of the TMEA Region Honor Band audition process. 

40 Falcon Band members began their preparations for this audition in early August, which culminated in multiple auditions against more than 700 students from 13 different area schools. We are very fortunate that the following 10 students were selected to represent Lake Dallas High School, the Falcon Band program, and the Lake Cities community in the 5A Region 2 Symphonic Band. These talented musicians will participate in a clinic and concert series scheduled for January 13 & 14, 2022.

Dylan McKinney - 1st chair, Piccolo
Junhwi Goo - 1st chair, Flute
Jennifer Gutierrez - 2nd chair, Oboe
Samantha Vermeulen - 3rd chair, Bassoon
Naomi Kitamura - 4th chair, Bassoon
Hannah Reed - 6th chair, Alto Saxophone
Nathan Armijo - 2nd chair, Bass Trombone
Aiden Ford - 3rd chair, Euphonium
Trey Phillips - 3rd chair, Tuba
Cole Howell - 4th chair, Percussion

Of these 10 students, 4 will go on to audition at the TMEA Area level on January 9, 2022. The results from the January audition will determine membership in the coveted TMEA All-State Honor Band (the highest individual honor that a high school musician can receive). Those competing at the AREA level are:

Dylan McKinney - Piccolo
Junhwi Goo - Flute
Jennifer Gutierrez - Oboe
Nathan Armijo - Bass Trombone

Please help us in congratulating these talented young people for this remarkable accomplishment.
