CHS Honor Band Among State's Best
The Coppell High School Honor Band was recently selected as the 3rd runner up in the 2012 Texas 5A Honor Band competition. This award placed the CHS Honor Band in the top four 5A concert bands in Texas out of over 260 and three of those top performing bands were from the highly competitive North Texas area.
Every other year the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) hosts the Honor Band competition for Class 5A. The competition begins when all of the bands in each region enter their Regional competition and the best two bands from that contest (Coppell and Duncanville) then qualify to enter the Area competition. Coppell and Spring continued to advance from Area to the State event held in San Antonio. The competition featured the top 14 bands from across Texas during the annual Texas Bandmasters Association Convention.
