Congrats to Kemp JH Honor Band for one of their UIL recordings making it to the state level of OPS! Congrats also to director, Mr. Saldaña and to Miss Delgado and Miss Lee for their assistance. “Armory”, by Randall Standridge, was performed by the JH Honor Band on April 6th at the Region 3 UIL concert contest in Canton TX. That selection placed 1st out of Region and then came out 1st from Area as well!
The Outstanding Performance Series (OPS) is a recorded contest conducted by our parent organization, the Association of Texas Small School Bands (ATSSB). Each band may send in songs from their UIL performances which are then judged by a panel of band directors and ranked into order by performance preference. This happens first at a Region level (there are 33 regions in the state of Texas), then the top performances move on to the Area level (there are 5 areas) and those that make the top cut are then sent to the State level which will be judged at our annual summer convention in San Antonio July 20th.
