The Veterans Memorial Early College High School Band Program
Welcome to the Veterans Memorial Charger Band. You are now a part of one of the most dynamic instrumental music programs in the state of Texas. There are many reasons for the projected success of our band program and it begins with our wonderful students, amazing parents, and supportive administration. Over the course of our existence, our marching and top three concert bands have received UIL Division 1 Sweepstakes Ratings. The Veterans Memorial Charger band has won numerous 1st Division Awards, placed in the top three at local marching competitions, and has consistently advanced to the Area G Marching Contest. Our fourth band, established in 2016 received Straight Division 1 Ratings at the BISD Band Evaluation Contest. Our Drum line has consistently won numerous awards at both local and state competitions. Our Colorguard has done a phenomenal job in competing at the Texas Educational Colorguard Association competitions. Our students have done a phenomenal job in auditioning for the Texas Music Educators Association All-State Audtions. Over the course of our existence, we have had many students make the All-Region Band, Orchestra, and Jazz Band. We have had 18 students make the TMEA All-State Band, where they competed against students from Houston, Corpus Christi, Laredo and the Rio Grande Valley. These students earned chairs in these prestigious ensembles, ranking them in the top 2% of music students in Texas!
