Jr. High UIL Band Competition


The Symphonic Band performed at the UIL Concert and Sight-reading Contest on Friday and received a Sweepstakes rating.

A Sweepstakes only happens when the judges award a superior rating of “One” to the band for their performance. This is the highest rating that can be given to a band.

JH and HS Bands in Santa Fe have been attending this contest for many years but have not achieved this level of success in 21 years.

The last Santa Fe band to receive a Sweepstakes rating was in 1998.


Congratulations to the Symphonic Band for this great accomplishment.
