The Highlander Band is stepping up its game for this year’s UIL competition show beginning with the regional contest on Oct. 18. With a more theatrical production, the band plans to carryover its success from last year during its first season at the Class 6A level.
The show is entitled “Stained Glass,” and is comprised of orchestral music from composers like Bach and Schubert. It will feature four soloists ― Iva Sadler on French horn, Mary Stimson on saxophone, Katelin Adams on piccolo, and BethAnne Bradshaw on flute ― as well as 2014 all-state choir performer Kathryn Davidson.
Visually, the props resemble a pipe organ and stained-glass windows, and the color guard will wave white and blue flags. The band is directed by Reagan Brumley.
