Kennemer Band Makes State's Top 10

Kennemer Middle School is continuing the tradition of excellence in Duncanville ISD’s band program.

The Kennemer Symphonic I band placed 10th in the state of Texas in the Texas Music Educators Association 2017 Honor Band Contest.

"The caliber of band directors in our district and musicianship of our students is so fantastic," said Kennemer Band Director Luzviminda Pascasio. "We are truly honored to be the 10th best band out of the sweet 16 on the state list.”

Nearly 130 middle school bands from across the state of Texas entered the Honor Band Contest. Judges listen to recordings of the bands’ concerts and chose who advances from Region to Area and then to State.

Duncanville ISD’s Byrd and Reed Middle School Bands both advanced to Area.
