Recent Successes

~The band competed in the Region 23 conference 5A University Interscholastic League Concert/Sight-reading contest at Madye Creek High School in Katy, TX on April 9th. The two performing groups were the Non-Varsity Symphonic band and the Varsity Wind Ensemble.

The Symphonic Band under the direction of Mr. Mosley earned an overall Excellent rating on their stage performance and earned Good ratings overall in sight-reading. They were the highest overall rated HISD Class 5A Non-Varsity band at the competition.

The Wind ensemble under the direction of Mr. Espinosa earned Excellent Ratings for their stage performance and took home straight 1's in sightreading. This group was also the highest overall rated HISD Class 5A Varsity band at the competition.

We are very proud of the students as they demonstrate heart and effort in everything they do, even while maintaining excellent grades in all of their courses. We appreciate the instruction and hard work from all the staff, faculty and administration in support of the fine young student musicians. They deserve the best for all they do in representing Waltrip High School and Houston ISD.

 Ram Band Parent Information

Greetings Parents! It's about that time again to get back into the swing of school and crazy schedules, and for all the new parents Welcome to the Ram Band. The Ram Band encourages all parents to join the Parent Club, it's a great way to meet new band parents and to find out what is going on with the band through the parent's side. If you would like to sign up, feel free to fill out a form and send your child with it to give it to the band directors or feel free to drop it off yourself and we will get you set up.(Parent/Guardian Contact form)

We also ask parents to help out with water donation as well. When we attend football games and marching contests, we have water for the kids that is donated by the parents. Although, we can never have too much water even in this Texas heat. If you would like to help out and donate water, we would really appreciate it. Please bring it by the band room.

Director of Bands
