Pre-Game show with all VISD Bands

Band started a new tradition last year for the East/West Pre-game show with the combined East/West Bands on the field playing the National Anthem.  That was a great success and now they expanded it.  In participation this year on the field you had all six bands from the Victoria ISD (East High School, West High School, Cade, Howell, Pattie Welder & Stroman Middle Schools). Great job to the students, parents and directors for presenting such a great Pre-game show.

All Region Jazz results – Congratulations East Band Students

Band JazzEach year students from all over the state compete to gain a chair in the TMEA All-State Jazz Band. Once again, two of our Titian band members represented our school district in high regards as they competed against students from Victoria, Port Lavaca, Corpus Christi, Portland, and   Laredo to secure a spot in the All-Region Jazz Band, the first step on the path to All-State.

Congratulations to Senior, Alan Olmos, on 1st chair Alto Saxophone and Senior, Alan Bailey, on 2nd chair Drum Set for their fine accomplishment. They both had the opportunity to move forward and perform a taped audition for the All-State Jazz Band.

The All-Region Jazz concert is open to the public and will be held at Flour Bluff Auditorium in Corpus Christi on the evening of January 31st.

Again Congratulations to Alan Olmos and Alan Bailey from the Victoria East Band Program! We are very proud of your accomplishments.

VISD State School Board Performance

Victoria ISD Fine Arts had the pleasure of bringing 74 student performers (band, orchestra, theatre and choir) to Austin for our State Board of Education meeting this morning.  This was a huge honor as only four school districts a year receive this special invitation to present at the beginnings of the meetings.

The performance, in addition to how our students represented Victoria, was superb.  They will be talking about our student performance, VISD and our Fine Arts program for a long time to come in the Texas Education Association building.  It was an honor, and VISD is proud of our students and our talented fine arts teachers that helped create this wonderful experience for our students!

After the performance, the students made a side trip to the Bob Bullock Museum to experience a bit of Texas History before returning back to Victoria.  It was a great day for our students and Victoria ISD.  See the interview video below from our Victoria Advocate.  Scroll down and click on this image on their page.
