Lake Ridge High School Band

Latest Posts

Congratulations to the 2018 Lake Ridge High School Wind Symphony for earning the designation as a Commended Winner in the National Wind Band Honors Mark of Excellence competition.  In addition, the ensemble was also recognized as a Commended Winner in the New Music category.   

Below is a bit of information regarding this national concert band competition.


The Mark of Excellence project seeks to recognize and award outstanding achievement in performance by high school and middle school bands, choirs and orchestras. The project gathers entries from throughout the United States and provides valuable feedback for all entrants. A unique competitive environment is created which allows ensembles to compare
their performance quality to other outstanding groups from across the country.  All entrants receive a compilation recording of the winning performances. Winners are recognized in regional and/or national publications and at national and regional conventions.

In addition to the ensemble’s recognition, Ben Agnew, Janna Campbell, and Aaron Nguyen were selected as Outstanding Soloists.

We are extremely proud of last year’s Wind Symphony students for their many outstanding performances throughout the spring semester and for earning this national recognition.
