2019 was a great year for Mike Howard and the Vandegrift HS Band program. In February the Vandegrift HS Wind Ensemble performed their 6a State Honor Band Concert in San Antonio, TX at TMEA. In the summer, Howard and Paul Pape won their division in the Texas Water Safari. In November the Vandegrift marching band won the Bands of America Class 4A championship and is the Grand National Champion. Finally, in December the Vandegrift Band was awarded the 2019 Sudler Shield, an international award recognizing high school, you, and international marching bands of world class excellence.
Listen to Mike talk about all of this and more in his episode of Sketchbook Podcast!
