THE BAND DIRECTORS
All- Region Band Auditions
Several students from La Marque High School auditioned for a spot in the All-Region Band in December.
We are proud to announce that out of 55 trumpet players, Jabarie Webb placed 8th overall and earned a chair in the All-Region Symphonic Band! Jabarie is a freshman at LMHS and received the audition music back in August.
Jabarie will perform his All-Region concert on January 18th at Brazosport High School in Freeport, TX. The audition process promotes students' dedication to their musical knowledge and skill.
Congratulations again to Jabarie for being ranked as the 8th best trumpet player in the entire region.
Congratulations, COUGAR Marching Band
The La Marque COUGAR Marching Band performed at the 2019 Region 13 UIL Marching Contest.
We are proud to announce that the Cougar Marching Band received EXCELLENT ratings from all three judges. The Cougar Marching Band has not received excellent ratings at a UIL contest in over 10 years. The students and staff at LMHS and LMMS have shown great support for this program and the students have worked extremely hard to get to where they're at now.
The band's show is titled "My Beautiful Nightmare" and features soloists Kaila Sajna, Jabari Webb, and Nathaniel Sajna.
This great accomplishment comes just one week after the band traveled to Edna, TX. to compete at the Edna Cowboy Invitational, and just three weeks from when the band took 1st place at the USBands Baytown Showcase. At the Edna Invitational, Kaila Sajna received the trophy for BEST SOLOIST in the 4A Classification. This contest hosted over 25 bands from all over the Houston area, 7 of which were in their 4A Classification.
The band staff at La Marque would like to thank all administrative staff at both La Marque Middle School and The La Marque High School for providing these programs with the great tools needed to grow. Lastly, we’d like to thank all teachers, parents and community members for their continuous love and support.
Drum Majors for the La Marque Cougar Marching Band are Lonnie Griggs, Jr. and Kaila Sajna.
