Borger High School Band traveled to Amarillo to audition for the Texas Music Educators Association Region 1 Band and Orchestra. The audition was held at Randall High School on Saturday, Dec. 7th. With one exception, all the students auditioning for this honor group represented 5A and 6A schools. As a result of this audition, Kaleb placed first chair in the TMEA Region 1 Symphonic Band and Orchestra. He will attend a clinic and concert for the Region Orchestra on Dec 13-14 at Caprock HS and WTAMU and a clinic for the Symphonic Band on Jan. 17-18, 2020 at Randall HS. Kaleb also qualified for the Area 6A track of the TMEA All-State Band process. The next round of auditions will take place on January 11 at Odessa Permian High School. He will be competing against student musicians from TMEA Area A, which is comprised of schools from the panhandle south to the Odessa/ Midland area, west to El Paso and east to the Ft. Worth suburbs. Kaleb also qualified for the Area round in the TMEA All-State Choir process. Kaleb represented himself, his school and community very well and is to be congratulated on his hard work and dedication to the #Borger ISD Bands.
