Congratulations to the following Killian Middle School Band students who successfully auditioned and were selected for the 2020-2021 Lewisville ISD All-District Honor Bands.

Nearly 600 students from all 15 LISD Middle Schools auditioned and competed for only a handful of spots in one of three elite ensembles. Students were required to play major scales, their full chromatic scale, two prepared etudes, and sight-reading. Percussion students were required to play a snare and mallet etude along with two sight-readings.

Killian had 46 students make the All-District band this year! Additionally, we had seven students earn the highest score in their instrument section and therefore were awarded first chair.

Bravo to all the students for working so hard and to Mr. Trevor Ousey and Ms. Jenna Lenhard for their commitment to the program. Additionally, the Killian Middle School band appreciates the support and teaching from Mr. Zach Houston and the team of private lesson instructors for their help and support along the way.

These students will join the other Honor Band members from around the region and participate in the LISD All-District Honor Band clinic and concert in November 2021.
