We would like to welcome everyone to our annual Harwood Band Program Spring Concert held on May 2nd at 6:30PM in the Trinity Auditorium.  Please take note of the time change for the event due to STAAR testing the following day.  Call time for Beginners and Symphonic Band will be 6:00PM on stage for beginners and in the Trinity Band Hall for Symphonic Band.  Wind Ensemble will need to be seated in the audience for the start of the concert.  Dress for the concert will be the same as the Winter Concert.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact one of us.  We look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday.  It has been a fantastic year!



Both the Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band took part in the Region 31 UIL Concert and Sightreading Assessment on April 19th and 20th.  Both bands performed at a high level and came home with hardware.  The Symphonic Band received a "Superior" rating in stage performance and an "Excellent" rating in sightreading.  The Wind Ensemble received "Superior" ratings from all six judges to get the coveted "Sweepstakes" award!  Please give the students a pat on the back and job well done from us! 


We would like to welcome all 6th graders to one of our instrument nights at Harwood Junior High.  These instrument selection nights will give students a chance to interact with the band directors and most importantly give students the opportunity to choose what instrument that they will be playing at Harwood Junior High.  Please make every attempt to make your night because it will be extremely busy during the open times. If you can not make your night, please feel free to contact Mr. Bellville to make up a time.  The schedule will be as followed:
