Randall hosted UIL for concert and sight reading this year, and all three bands for Randall competed on Thursday. Winds, symphonic and concert band all competed to get a score of a one. A one is the highest score you can receive in this competition while a 3 or a 4 is the lowest. Bands perform with UIL approved concert music and move on to the sight reading room. During the sight reading competition, bands receive a piece of music made by UIL, listen to the director for a period of time on how to play the music, and then play the music for the very first time.
Symphonic band preformed at 8 a.m., concert band performed at 8:25 a.m. and winds performed at 4:55 p.m. Symphonic band and Winds got straight 1’s, but concert band got a 2 overall advancing a level from last year. 20 bands were hosted this year from around the district including some smaller bands like Shamrock and Tulia. This contest lasted until around 8 pm with Tascosa being the last band to perform.
