The Friendswood High School Bands recently participated in the UIL Region
17 Concert and Sight Reading Contest at Pearland High School recently.
All four FHS bands earned all Superior Ratings from all the judges. That is
a perfect score. No other high school in the region had all of their bands earn all
superior ratings, according to Band Director Greg Dick.
This is the 14th consecutive year that the FHS Band has won the
UIL “Sweepstakes Trophy” representing the marching band earning a superior
rating at the region contest and the varsity concert band earning superior ratings in
concert and sight reading.
The bands are the Wind Ensemble, directed by Greg Dick; Symphonic Band,
directed by Aaron Brown; Concert Band I, directed by Julio Sanchez; and Concert
Band II, directed by Greg Dick.
The students have been working on the music since January and played at
their highest level.
“We are very proud of them!” Dick said.
