Congratulations to the NMS Symphonic and Honor Bands on their stellar outing at the Region 30 UIL Concert & Sightreading contest this week. Both bands represented Nichols with class and impressed judges with how mature they sounded. Our Symphonic Band earned Superior (First Division) ratings from all judges on their stage performance earning a First Division Plaque for the school. Our Honor Band earned Superior (First Division) ratings from all judges on both their stage performance AND their sightreading performance, earning the coveted Sweepstakes award for Nichols. Sweepstakes is the highest accolade awarded by UIL to a middle school band. We are very proud of our young musicians and if you haven’t heard them yet, put it on your list! Our spring concert is on May 16th and we would love to see you there!
