Middle School Musicians are Superior at Concert and Sight-Reading Contest

May 06, 2021

Bands from all 17 Frisco ISD middle schools competed in the annual UIL Region 24 Concert & Sight-Reading Assessment last month. More than 20 Varsity and Non-Varsity bands earned a superior rating in concert or sight-reading.

While the superior ratings of the young musicians are admirable, it is the perseverance through the preparation process that shows the grit and drive of the students and their instructors. 

With the pandemic, there were more obstacles than during a typical school year that included less group rehearsal time and a virtual performance submission process. It was also the first time these student musicians participated in a performing UIL event this year.

Each middle school band submitted performances of three pieces before participating in the sight-reading evaluation. During the virtual sight-reading evaluation, the director provided abbreviated instruction before the band performed the sight-reading music together. The students were evaluated on the virtual performance of their first time to ever play the piece.
