Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!

 

Congratulations go out to all of the members of the Pit Orchestra for doing an incredible job this past weekend putting on four wonderful performances of Mary Poppins. I’d like to personally thank Mr. Hackworth and all of the pit orchestra students for their countless hours of hard work and preparation that they put in to making the show such a success. Nice work everyone!

 

I’d also like to congratulate the Birdville High School Winterguard for having a great 1st performance of the 2017 season at Arlington Martin High School this past Saturday. The girls had a great 1st performance of the season placing 5th overall. We couldn’t be more proud of you ladies!

 

Last but certainly not least, a very special congratulations goes out to senior trumpet player Jonathan Shier for being selected as a Semi Finalist in the “National Trumpet Competition”!!! Jonathan will now travel to Denver Colorado to compete in the live auditions in late March. Congratulations Jonathan for representing, not only yourself, but Birdville High School and the Mighty Hawk Band at such a high level. Way to go buddy!
