Pizitz Symphonic Band Receives Highest Honor

 

As many of you may know, our Pizitz Middle School Band has a history of excellence. In 2013, the Pizitz Band won the John Philip Sousa Sudler Cup, which recognizes outstanding band programs at the middle and junior high school level from across the United States.  Also that year, our band was one of four bands invited to perform at the Music for All National Concert Band Festival in Indianapolis, Indiana.  This year our band program was awarded the National Band Association's Blue Ribbon Award for band programs of excellence.  This award will be presented at our spring concert on May 12 at Shades Mountain Baptist Church.
 
However, today's announcement is historic for the state of Alabama.  We are proud to announce that our Symphonic Band is the first ever middle school band from our state to be chosen to perform at the Midwest International Band and Orchestra Conference.  An invitation to perform at the Midwest Conference is the highest award a band can receive! 
 
The Midwest Conference has been in existence 69 years.  Throughout this time the only Alabama bands that have received an invitation are the:  Elmore County High School, 1965; Grissom High School, 1985; Hillcrest High School, 2010, and the Hoover First Edition Jazz Band, 2013.  The Pizitz Symphonic Band will make history performing at this event next December in Chicago, Illinois!  
 
This kind of award cannot happen without support from the community, school administration, and  our incredible band parents!.
