Congratulations to the following Killian Middle School Band 7th & 8th grade students who successfully auditioned and were selected for the 2023-2024 Lewisville ISD All-District Honor Bands.

Nearly 1000 students from all 15 middle schools in Lewisville ISD auditioned and competed for only a handful of spots in one of three elite ensembles. Students were required to play two major scales, their full chromatic scale, two prepared etudes, and sight-reading. Percussion students were required to play snare, mallet, and timpani etudes, along with a snare sight-reading.

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

Congratulations to the following students:
