It may be nothing new for Nacogdoches ISD’s high school and middle school band programs to flood all-region contests with qualifiers, but it remains impressive nonetheless.
Band students from NISD compete against other Class 5A and 6A bands, Director of Bands Glynn Wells said.

“Once again our students have performed at a high level,” Wells said. “They do an outstanding job representing our school and district at these competitions.”

Thirty-two students from NHS, 28 from McMichael Middle School and 24 from Mike Moses Middle School qualified for all region this month. An additional 16 students at NHS move on to the all area competition that will be held Jan. 13 in Duncanville.

NHS students that were named all region will take part in a clinic Jan 19-20 at University of Texas-Tyler. Middle school all region qualifiers will participate in a clinic Jan. 27 in Hallsville.

At the clinics, students will be introduced to three or four pieces of new music. After spending the day learning the music, the all-region bands will perform a concert that evening.
