The Weatherford High School concert, sightreading, and symphonic bands recently earned Division I ratings at the UIL Concert and Sightreading Contest at Burleson High School.

The WHS Symphonic Band (non-varsity classification) received Division I ratings from four out of six judges, earning a unanimous Division I rating in the sightreading portion.

Weatherford’s Wind Symphony (varsity classification) earned unanimous Division I ratings from all six judges and brought home the coveted Sweepstakes Award. This prestigious award represents Division I ratings in UIL marching, concert and sightreading contests.

In October, the band earned Division I ratings from three judges. This is the fifth consecutive year the WHS Band has received Division I ratings at all three contests.

Weatherford High School’s Wind Symphony will be holding an encore performance of their UIL program Friday from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. in the WHS Durant Auditorium. The performance is free to the public.
