Odem Bands Schedule – Week of 1/14/2018
This week we would like to begin by congratulating Zenaida ‘Ziggy’ Lara for earning the 1st Chair Area Clarinet spot this weekend! She advances to the All-State Bands for her second time, and will perform with the All-State Band February 16th in San Antonio! She will have a final round of auditions at State on February 13th. We also extend our congratulations to the other students who auditioned this weekend as well! Abby Tovar, Joey Aguirre, Anissa Hirle, Landon Garza, Ethan Sanchez, Natalie Stanley, and Christina Montoya all represented Odem High School well at the Area Auditions!
This week we will primarily be focused on students preparing for UIL Solo and Ensemble in February, and UIL Concert Contest coming up in April. An updated calendar was sent home last week with students. You can find a copy here http://www.odembands.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/2018-2019-Odem-Bands-Calendar-Updated-Spring-2019.pdf.
