 Raider Pride Band Advances to Next Level in OPS Competition
 
Congrats to the Sunnyvale High School Concert Band on their recent recorded adjudication in the ATSSB "Outstanding Performance Series" competition.  The OPS allows for 1A-4A bands across the State of Texas to submit their UIL or other Contest recordings, marches and concert recordings, from the region to be judged by a concert band panel against other bands from the region.  The SHS Concert Band advanced from the "Region 3" level (placing first in all categories) and will now go against other "Area North" bands from around the state.
