In December, band students from all across Region 10,  had the opportunity to try-out for approximately 300 seats in two  All-Region Middle School bands. Two of those spots were earned by Orangefield Junior High students. 8th grader, Wendy McKay, earned a spot in the prestigious band ,on oboe, and Carl Mize, a 7th grade band member, qualified on tuba.

This past weekend, these Bobcats met with other All Region qualifiers and rehearsed together at Port Neches-Groves High School, Friday night, and all day Saturday, for a performance Saturday evening at the Nederland High School Performing Arts Center. Region 10’s Middle School All Region Band performed along with the High School All-Region Bands. Mr. Michael Rose, Orangefield Junior High’s band director, stated, “All of the students worked extremely hard and performed an exceptional concert for all in attendance.”
