Band members win places on All-Region Honor Band

This past Saturday, on Dec. 9, 23 Littlefield High School Band students competed in the Region 16 ATSSB All Region Honor Band try-outs on the campus of Levelland High School. The students competing were from schools in classifications 1A through 4A. Approximately 500 students competed at the event. Littlefield Marching Band Director Bonnie Anderson said Littlefield students began preparations for this competition back in August. “They worked with one of the directors once a week,” she said.

 

“This music is a challenge that must be worked out slowly. This try out is a two-step process to earn a seat in the ATSSB Texas All State Band for 2018.” Out of the 23 students participating, 19 earned a seat in this year’s 2018 All Region Honor Band.
