Thursday, March 3rd Pleasanton Mighty Eagle Band preformed for UIL and the Symphonic band got all ones in Sight-reading and a two, one, two in Concert. While Wind Ensemble got all ones in Sight-reading and all ones in Concert. Mr. Solis expressed his fears for UIL “My biggest fear was that we would be out of school for bad weather and that would affect our UIL Contest. This happened last year, and we had to work hard to get everything to a 1st division level in time for the contest.” And his goal for UIL this year was to “improve on the quality of our recordings,” as he chose harder music than normal and “were able to refine everything to the level that we wanted this year,” and he was very happy with the recording of the music. Mr. Solis told what his favorite part of UIL is the contest “It’s great to finally get to this point in our preparation and to hear the other groups on this day.” And also ask Mr. Solis how it feels to know that the Seniors you thought are leaving soon “It is hard to see the Seniors leave every year. We got to know these students in 6th grade, and mature through the years. Although it is great to see them become adults and leave high school, it is always bittersweet time for us.” Good job Mighty Eagle Band.
