Reagan Wind Ensemble earns national honor


The Reagan High School Wind Ensemble was recently named a National Winner in the Foundation for Music Education’s Mark Of Excellence competition. The Mark of Excellence is a national school music competition that honors music programs and their ensembles for high standards in performance. Band Programs that enter the competition are adjudicated by nationally respected collegiate level band directors and music educators from across the country. This year, there were 236 entries from 36 different states. A portion of entrants were named Commended Winners, and the top percentage of entrants were named National Winners

The Reagan Wind Ensemble also advanced to the State round of the TMEA Honor Band process in July and received straight Division 1 (Superior) ratings at the UIL Concert and Sight Reading Contest in April.
