Kapler, only a sophomore, became the first AMCHS student to earn all-state band since 2009 and was one of 18 AMCHS musicians who qualified to audition at the all-area tryout. As a 5A school, AMCHS competes in the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) sanctioned contest. Kapler will rehearse and perform with the TMEA All-State Band in February in San Antonio.
CSHS students Macha (clarinet), Ponjuan (clarinet), Hernandez (alto clarinet), and Yosko (bass trombone) were four of only 290 students statewide selected to the Association of Texas Small School Bands (ATSSB). CSHS is currently a 3A high school. The all-state band will rehearse and perform in San Antonio in February at the ATSSB All-State Band Clinic and Concert.
