3-8-2023 Pirate Band Receives 5th Consecutive Sweepstakes Award!

Yesterday, March 7, 2023, the Lytle Pirate Band attended UIL Concert and Sight Reading at Pleasanton High School. The students have been preparing their music since January, and they did not disappoint! The band earned 1s from all 3 judges on stage for their prepared music, and then they earned ones from all 3 judges in the Sight Reading room. This is the highest score that is possible to achieve! Earning a 1 at Concert and Sight Reading, in addition to the 1st division rating at the UIL Marching Contest in the fall fulfills the UIL requirements for the band to be considered a “Sweepstakes” band. This marks the 5th consecutive Sweepstakes Award that the Band has earned! 

As a band staff we could not have been happier with the growth of these fine young musicians. Getting a perfect score yesterday was just the icing on the cake! If you see a Lytle Pirate Band student today, please help us congratulate them! 

Here is a LINK to the recordings from yesterday if you would like to hear them. 

Special thanks to Administrators Elizabeth Stewart and Jacob Escamilla, as well as our band parents for attending and supporting us yesterday!
