Huge Success for Southside Band at Region Band Contest


Saturday, December 4th, 23 members of the Southside High School Mighty Cardinal Band traveled to Medina Valley and competed against the top band students from surrounding schools in the TMEA region 11 honor band contest. We are proud to report that all 23 students came home with honors, including 9 students making band 2 and 10 students making band 1. Of these, 7 students will continue on to the area level audition in January for a chance at making the all state band.
