WE DID IT! EMS Symphonic Band received superior ratings on stage AND in sight reading, earning a Sweepstakes Trophy! The kids worked so hard for this prestigous accomplishment. Out of all 21 bands that performed at the UIL Concert & Sight Reading Contest, only 6 bands were honored with this award including EMS Symphonic Band!

Sounds of Spring Pre-UIL Contest Results
Thank you for letting me take our awesome students to a contest this Wednesday. Mr. Daigle‘s concert band received an excellent rating on both stage and in sight reading. Mr. Sumner’s band received superior ratings on stage and in sight reading, earning them a sweepstakes trophy. These kids did an awesome job and had a lot of responsibilities to take care of in order to make this day happen. Thank you for everything that you are doing to help our kids succeed.
MS All-Region Auditions
This past Friday, December 7, 2018 were the MS All-Region Auditions. Stuents from all around the region-including schools like Melissa, Anna, Van Alstyne, Farmersville, Howe, Celina, etc.-prepare audition music for the honor of making the All-Region Symphonic or Concert Bands. This audition is like a giant chair test, and students are ranked based on their scores from top to bottom.
We had 13 students from Edge Middle School respresent our school and audition for the band. Our students competed against 88 Flutes, 89 clarinets, 67 percussion, 64 trumpets, 56 trombones, 53 Saxophones, 61 Euphoniums & Tubas, and 35 French Horns. Fortunately we had 5 of our Edge Braves make the band! Lauren McDaniel, clarinet, and Andrew Carroll, tuba, made the Symphonic Band and Karrington Robinson, clarinet, Lilly Roddy, flute, and Joseph Smith, euphonium, made the Concert Band! This is the second year for Lauren McDaniel and Karrington Robinson to make the All-Region Band!
We are so proud of all our students representing our school so well!
