TMEA All-State Convention Results
Our Liberty band students just returned from the TMEA All-State convention. This year, 68,925 students in Texas entered the All-State audition process. Only 1,778 will make an All-State ensemble (a 3% success rate). After making the group, the students have 4 weeks to work on 34 pages of music for their chair placement audition that happens on the first day of their arrival to San Antonio. This year, students from Liberty finished as follows:
Richard Huang – Oboe - #2 in the State
Charles Yang – Clarinet - #25 in the State
Jisu Kang – Clarinet - #1 in the State
Mark Shi – Clarinet - #5 in the State
Daniel Yang – Bass Clarinet - #2 in the State
Nathan Brooks – Alto Saxophone (Jazz Band) - #1 in the State
Eddie Chen – Alto Saxophone - #1 in the State
Sid Sadhu – Jazz Trumpet - #8 in the State
Reuben Mathews – Jazz Trumpet - #4 in the State
Caitlyn Hazzard – Trombone - #9 in the State
We are EXTREMELY proud of these students and their accomplishment! This represents the largest number of All-State Band students from Liberty HS in the history of the school. Congratulations to each of them!
Both Jazz I & Jazz II will have their final performances at the annual Liberty HS Spring Swing!!
Jazz I competed in the 1st annual Plano Jazz invitational and had the opportunity to play in Pre-lims and Finals!
The group placed 3rd overall and earned outstanding Brass among all that participated. Congratulations!
Jazz I is officially done with their "contest" season but will be holding a few more concerts open to public before Spring Swing.

A Note From the Redhawk Band Booster President
Happy Spring Redhawk Band Family!
UIL Concert & Sight-Reading Contest are quickly upon and so is Winter Guard Championships. Continue to check your band calendar regularly for the many and varied events coming up in March and April.
Please remember we have a Redhawk Band Booster Club meeting on the first Tuesday of every month.
The next RBBC meeting will be on Tuesday, April 3rd at 6:00 pm in the band hall. Your presence and input are welcome!
We are also getting excited about Spring Trip 4/20-4/23. The band is still in need of adult chaperones. We are in need of at least 3 more chaperones to make this trip safe and successful.
The Redhawk Band Booster Club has decided to supplement $100 of the Chaperone costs for Spring Trip bringing the Chaperone fee to $200. I will be sending out an email with these details this week.
Remember, many hands make the load light. If not you, then who?
Go Band! Go Guard!
