ACMS Band Continued Summer Success

Last Thursday, the Arbor Creek Honors Band's recording competed at the State Championship during the Texas Bandmasters Association Convention in San Antonio.

There were 5 judges listening to the top 15 recordings in the state that had advanced out of their Region (28 regions in the state) and Area (7 area's in the state).

The ACMS Honors Band came out 4th overall in the STATE and received ordinals of 1st place, 3rd place, 4th place and two 5th place rankings from the five judges.

This was a very difficult competition at every level (region, area & state) and it is such a huge honor to not only advance to the state level, but to place within the top 5 is tough. ACMS has made it to the state level only one other time; in 2011 earning 5th place. The kids are very excited & proud! You already know how great they are, but this has been a pretty neat experience for the band program to get so much recognition.

The PURPOSE of the state honor band contest is best described in a quote used on all of the programs: "Competition... not to defeat an opponent or win a prize, but to pace one another on the road to excellence." - Sir Walter Davis

Thanks so much for everyone's support of the band. Looking forward to another great year!

ACMS Band

The 2014-2015 Arbor Creek Honors Band UIL contest selections were entered in the Texas Music Educators Association state honor band contest. At the region level contest, there were 5 judges who listened to the 10 anonymous bands entered from Lewisville & Frisco ISD and scored and ranked all 10. The top 2 bands advance to AREA, and ACMS came out 2nd! Then, at the AREA level, the ACMS Honors Band came in first place to advance to the STATE COMPETITION in San Antonio on Thursday, July 23! Way to go Eagle Honors Band!
