Odem Bands Schedule Week of 3/5/2018 – UIL Concert and Sight-Reading Contest

Congratulations to the OHS Students who performed with the TAMUCC Islander Honor Band this weekend! Brandon Morin took the top Trombone chair for the group, and we had several other students who placed fairly high in their sections!

This week the Odem JH Symphonic Winds and the Odem HS Wind Ensemble will attend the Region UIL Concert and Sight-Reading Contest in Goliad. This is a major contest date for us and we look forward to the students performances. The event will take place at the Goliad HS Auditorium and Sight-Reading will be held in the Goliad HS Band Hall.
