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.
