Band Makes History With Sight Reading

On Wednesday, March 4, the Ponder High School Band competed at the UIL Concert Band and Sight Reading Contest at Krum High School.  The band received straight 1’s in sight reading for the first time since at least 2009!!!!  For those of you who have never competed in this, the band receives a piece of music that they have never seen before much less practiced.  They have 7 minutes to go over the piece and then perform it for the judges. This is a very difficult contest and getting straight 1’s is quite memorable!  The band also received an Excellent rating on stage. If you see any of the kiddos in the hallway that are in band please congratulate them!
