38 Cain Middle School Band students were selected for the Rockwall ISD All-District Honor Band.
In October, 150 students from all three Rockwall ISD middle schools auditioned and competed for only a handful of spots in the elite ensemble. Students were required to play two major scales, their full chromatic scale, and two prepared etudes. Percussion students played two etudes on snare, and mallets.
This year, Cain had 38 students make the All-District band. This is the largest number of students in Cain’s school history and the largest number of students from all three campuses.
Additionally, 11 Cain students earned the highest score in their instrument group and were awarded first chair. This is the largest number of first chair students in Cain school history, and is the most of all three middle schools.
These students along with other Cain band students will move on to audition for the Region level in November where they will compete against students from Forney ISD, Garland ISD, Mesquite ISD, Royse City ISD and other school districts.
