Under the guidance of Mr. Jesus Perez, the Gladiator Regiment Band began its summer workouts on August 4. Mr. Perez is relying on his two new Drum Majorettes, Jessica Hernandez and Molly Haight, to help get the IHS band members marching tall and looking sharp.
This time they didn’t even have to leave home to advance to the next round of OPS. The Oustanding Performance Series contest is held every summer. Bands submit their recordings of their individual UIL contest pieces. At the region contest the top three concert and top two march selections advance to the Area contest. Last week, the IHS band placed 2nd in both the concert and march categories meaning that two of their three UIL contest pieces will be listened to by Area judges this Saturday, June 20. Good luck to the Gladiator Regiment Band and congratulations on making it this far!!!

Success has decided to follow the Italy Gladiator Regiment Band wherever it marches! With that kind of following, it’s no wonder the IHS Band stands tall in the winner’s circle shining the brightest gold for this new school year. Last week’s two marching contests affirmed that Italy’s band is making an impression by outscoring all district competitors.
