Cinco Ranch High School Band Competes at the Lone Star Preview
By Lesley Ann Jones
Katy, TX News – The Cinco Ranch High School Cougar Band recently represented Katy ISD at the 2014 Lone Star Preview Marching Band Championship. Held at Woodforest Bank Stadium in The Woodlands, students competed against 14 other bands from across the state for top honors.
Their performance, In the Mix, combined classical components of music and mixed them with dance club rhythms and beats for a show that won over students and parents alike. Written by Daniel Montoya Jr, the piece included works by Beethoven, Bizet, Handel, and Mozart.
After completing the Bands of America regional contest in Austin, Texas earlier this season, they placed fifth in the preliminary round at the Lone Star Preview contest, where they advanced to the finals and achieved a Cougar Band record of fourth place. This accomplishment is testament to the hard work and dedication of the directors, band, and Encore dance team members.
The next stop for the Cougar Band will be the UIL Area E 6A Marching Contest, held on Saturday, October 25, at the Berry Center. Bands from 40 6A high schools from Houston, Katy, Missouri City, and Cypress will compete.
The band would like to extend a huge “Thank You!” to their boosters, especially the team of parents who help them get to and from events and practices, and help out during every production. Without their support, the band wouldn’t be as successful and as happy as they are.
