    Last Saturday, September 25, 2021, the Lytle Pirate Band competed at the Beeville ISD Marching Festival. There were 9 bands in the 3A classification, 5 of which are regular contenders at the Area and State level of competition. Our band performed the best show that they have performed so far this year, which earned them 6th place overall!

  • 6-14-2021 All-State Band

    This past week I had the honor of taking Emelia Garcia to Melissa to perform with the ATSSB (association of Texas small school bands) All-State Band. Emelia was in the concert band which consisted of 1A-3A schools. When we arrived she had one last audition in which she became the 5th best flute player in the state.

  • 5-28-2021 Flute Quartet Excels at State Contest

    Our flute quartet that qualified for the State UIL Solo & Ensemble Contest received their results today, and they were awarded a 1st Division, which is a rare accomplishment at the State level! The quartet was composed of graduates Emelia Garcia and Emma Polomsky and Sophomores (soon to be Juniors) Cambri Davila and Natalie Williams. Thank you to MJ Robles for all the work she did with these girls, and for all the work they put in to end the year on a “high note” for the Pirate Band!

  • 5-18-2021 We're Going to Miss You Papa Fender - Lytle Band Students' Tribute to Mr. Mark Fender

    Throughout this year, a group of Lytle band/video students, Damian Ramos, Donald Glasen, Elias Moore, Rafael Pacheco, Bella Lopez, Greg Martinez and Emiliano Peralta plotted in secret to celebrate (lament) their beloved Band Director's retirement. Mr. Mark Fender, who sometimes answered to their "Papa Fender" nickname, was delighted by the surprise-showing of this video at the Band Banquet on April 30, 2021. It is now YouTube-published for the rest of our Pirate Family to enjoy as the 2020-2021 school year comes to a close and we wish Mark Fender well in his next adventure.

  • 3-3-2021 Junior High Band Concert and Sight Reading Results

    Today, March 3rd, the Junior High had UIL Concert and Sight Reading Evaluations. It was so close. Unfortunately, we did not earn a trophy but our students still had an great performance. The Junior High earned a 2-1-2 rating on stage and that comes out to a 2nd division. In the eyes of UIL, a 2nd division is considered excellent. In sight reading, we earned a 2nd division as well. It’s been a tough year and a half and I truly felt our students did the very best they could. Unfortunately, too many mental errors and small mistakes added up. Not having a single student with contest experience due to covid did not help us any today as nerves got the better of some students. We will take our judges comments to heart as we continue working to come out stronger next year.
