During crossover week of the NISD football schedule (September 24, 25, 26) all five football halftime shows gave tribute to America’s armed service men and women, current and retired. Marching bands from each high school collaborated in preparing a halftime show to include the sounding of TAPS in honor of those that have fallen in service to America. In addition, the ARMED FORCES SALUTE MEDLEY or AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL was performed to recognize and thank all personnel protecting our nation.
Congratulations to NISD jazz students for being selected to the majority of jazz chairs at the recent Texas Music Educators’ Association Region 11 Jazz Auditions. Standard big band instrumentation was selected for two bands. Both ensembles will be in concert on Saturday, November 7, 2:30 pm at Sandra O’Connor HS.
