CHS/SJA Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band Receive Superior Ratings

The CHS/SJA Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band received superior ratings for their prepared stage performance and sight-reading in the district band festival held at Woodlawn High School on Wednesday, March 18. Both groups now qualify for the state band festival to be held in April in Lake Charles.

The Wind Ensemble received superior ratings by all four judges. This included three judges in the prepared concert portion of the day and one judge for the sight-reading portion. CHS/SJA were one of only 21 of the 59 ensembles in attendance to receive all superior ratings.

The district festival was the first appearance for the Symphonic band. They received two superior ratings and one excellent rating for the prepared concert portion of the day and a superior for the sight-reading portion.

Catholic High School had 80 students participate in district band festival.
