Middle School Band Honors

Two Duncanville ISD middle school bands were selected as Commended Winners from some of the finest middle school musical ensembles in the United States. The Reed Middle School Symphonic I Band and the Kennemer Middle School Symphonic I Band competed against 234 ensembles from across 36 states in The Foundation for Music Education’s 2016 Mark of Excellence Project.

“These Duncanville ISD bands are wonderful examples of musical achievements and are a credit to your school district,” said The Mark of Excellence Executive Director, Dick Clardy.

Bands submit recordings of their performance to be judged by a panel of experts. The top quarter of entries receive National Winner status, and the second quarter receive Commended Honors.
