LD Falcon Bands Region 2 UIL Concert and Sight Reading Evaluation

On Wednesday, April 20, 2022, the Falcon Band participated in the Region 2 UIL Concert and Sight Reading Evaluation at Hebron High School. We had three bands perform and couldn't be more proud of their results. Each band performed on stage (prepared the required music) and sight-reading ( performing a new piece of music without the benefit of practicing it). This UIL evaluation is our state assessment.
I am happy and proud to announce the following results...
The Falcon Concert Band (sub-non-varsity group) received unanimous EXCELLENT ratings on stage and in sight-reading! This is a huge accomplishment as it is the first time this group has ever participated in a UIL concert and sight-reading contest.
The Falcon Symphonic Band (non-varsity group) received an Excellent rating for their stage performance and a SUPERIOR rating for their sight-reading evaluation. 
The Falcon Wind Symphony (varsity group) received unanimous SUPERIOR ratings for their stage and sight-reading performances. As a result, the group received the highest honor bestowed by the UIL to high school band programs...the UIL SWEEPSTAKES award. 
If you have not had an opportunity to hear these groups play, we want to invite you to hear them at our annual Falcon Music Festival. These groups and more will perform in a day-long music festival held on the LDHS campus on Saturday, May 21, 2022. Watch your email for specific performance times, but put this event on your calendar now!
Please help us congratulate these kids on their outstanding efforts!
