Spring Region Meeting

I wanted to remind everyone of our upcoming Spring Region 4 TMEA/UIL meeting on Friday, May 11 at 5pm in the band room at Mt. Pleasant High School.  We’ll have our TMEA officer elections which come on even years and information from the home office in Austin regarding our Texas music programs.  We’ll also have our UIL meeting, set the calendar for next year and discuss all our competitions for the 2018-19 school year.

All ATSSB business has been handled for the upcoming year, so there is no decisions to be made with our end.

Change in Region Auditions Info

According to the State Board meeting this morning in San Antonio, we will be having to decide on etudes, cuts, and scales for All-Region Auditions prior to September 1.  This will only be required for the High School Auditions and not the Middle School.  Any choices concerning the audition material can not be changed after this date.

I will contact some of the directors in our Region and have them help in choosing any cuts and will post them online after September 1.

Clinic and Concert Change and Region Meeting

The MS Bands clinics and concerts will be at Sabine HS this weekend.  Please plan accordingly.

We will also host our annual Region Meeting on Saturday at 10AM in the Library located next to the Auditorium at Sabine High School.

Here is a Map of the parking area at White Oak if you have any questions.  Also, please note the parking situation for Friday and Saturday.  On Friday please park behind the Middle School Gym or across the street from the Auditorium.  Saturday you may park in any of the event parking areas.

Updates to Calendar

The calendar has been updated for a couple of changes that we needed to make.  Please be sure and update your travel plans for these.  If you have any questions please let me know.

 

High School Jazz Clinic and Concert – Pleasant Grove ISD Fine Arts Complex, schedule unchanged.

High School All Region Auditions – Pittsburg High School, schedule unchanged.   Mr. Jesmore was very accommodating with our need to change this, and since he is also the HS Coordinator for the Region he will have the concert music ready for the students/directors to take with them that day.
