UIL One Act Play RESULTS
Last Saturday, the Pershing Theater Department performed ARGONAUTIKA
in the UIL One Act Play Competition.
Our students did an amazing job and have advanced to the district level.
Region Band Competition RESULTS
Last Saturday, members of the Pershing Wind Ensemble competed in the annual Region Band competition. About 1,000 students from HISD, Alief ISD, and Katy ISD took part in this competition. Last year, the Pershing Band had only 2 students earn chairs in the Region 23 Band; this year, that number grew to 8 students! Congratulations to the following students:
Noah Alapat – 1st Chair Alternate Bassoon
Ava Mackie – 2nd Chair Symphonic Band Clarinet
Elizabeth Alvarado – 8th Chair Concert Band Clarinet
Bryan Alvarez – 3rd Chair Concert Band Bass Clarinet
Madison Harpster – 4th Chair Wind Ensemble Trumpet
Stephen Schrock – 4th Chair Concert Band Trumpet
Ryan Shupe – 2nd Chair Concert Band French Horn
Dominique Foriest – 6th Chair Symphonic Band Trombone
Special recognition goes out to Madison Harpster. Due to her placing so high in her section, she was automatically placed to perform as 4th chair Trumpet in the Region 23 Full Symphony Orchestra. Way to go Madison!
