This past Saturday, four high school band students traveled to the HPU campus to compete in the annual Region 7 All Region tryouts. SSHS band students competed against other students from region 7 in class 1A- 3A to earn a chair placement in two region bands. These students practiced for months to prepare very challenging etudes along with mastering 9 scales. Not every student chooses to take on this challenge.
Tanner Hawkins (trumpet), Ryan Guidroz (percussion), Aaron Rixse (Euphonium), Nick Tasker (Saxophone) represented San Saba ISD well by placing above many in their instrument groups.
Congrats to Tanner Hawkins for placing 11th chair in concert band, and 23rd overall out of 55 trumpets. Take time to praise these students next time you see them for their hard work.
