Congratulations to Kingwood High School Students Luke Hammersmith and Dyron Powell, who placed in Wind Ensemble for the upcoming school year. Currently Dyron is a sophomore and Luke is a freshman so I am very proud of their work auditioning with students their age and older!
The saxophone students of Cypress Springs High School gave a wonderful recital featuring duets, quartets, and saxophone ensemble for the parents. Works ranged from Bach to current arrangements by Springs alumni Alex Perez. Go Springs!
