All Region MS Band 2021

All Region MS Band 2021

Litzy Alavez Sosa

Have you ever dreamed about playing an instrument? Here at Andrews Middle School and Andrews High School, you have the opportunity to play a variety of different instruments. Band is an elective that takes tons of practice and true dedication.  Not many students and parents realize that being in a band offers numerous opportunities. Band can open doors to higher education, chances to travel and compete, and the possibility to make lifelong memories and friends.

For example, learning to play an instrument can benefit you in the future. Many colleges and universities offer scholarships to students to play in their band. Playing in the band also makes students more competitive on college applications. Possible scholarships aren’t the only benefits of participating in band.

Students also have the opportunity to compete in several important competitions. Students get to travel to other schools in different cities and compete against other musicians in our area. Students get to meet different people from all over the area and state. These memories and experiences stay with these students for years to come. Truly band has its own little subculture.

The Andrews middle school band directors are Mr. Winner, Miss. Hair, and Mr. Firenza. They worked really hard to prepare these kids for this year’s spring competition. The students practiced for approximately 2 months. On December 7th, 2021, The Andrews Middle School Band competed in McCamey, Texas against
other schools from all around west Texas. The students in the band worked so hard for this competition, and their hard work paid off. Students with superb skills had the opportunity to play in a  concert on January 21, 2022.
