The Mighty Cardinal Band continues to earn accolades this summer. The Melissa High School Wind Ensemble took first place last month in the state competition for Class 4A March in the Association of Texas Small School Bands (ATSSB) Outstanding Performance Series (OPS).
The band’s UIL Concert March recording of “The Klaxon” will be featured on a CD comprised of all 2017 ATSSB OPS state winners. This CD will be distributed to all Texas Public Small Schools across the State of Texas. Additionally, the Melissa band will be recognized at the Texas Music Educators Convention in 2018.
This is the first time in program history that a Melissa Band concert recording has advanced to the state level, and the first time a recording has earned first place.
Join us in congratulating the Mighty Cardinal Band students and staff on this achievement!
