The USSBA unveils its tentative fall Texas schedule

Team is on site at TEMA conference for your thoughts, questions


Texas bands have a full schedule this fall with 16 USSBA events!

As the Texas Music Educators annual conference gets underway in the beautiful city of San Antonio, the US Scholastic Band Association is proud to unveil its preliminary fall event schedule for the Lone Star State! 

Sixteen events make up the tentative schedule that begins Sept. 24 and culminates on Nov. 12 with the USSBA Texas Championship to be held in San Antonio.  Five Preview events and eight Showcase and Regional shows have been tentatively slotted. The USSBA is also pleased to bring the great state of Texas our DeMoulin Challenge series to two cities – Houston and Dallas – where bands can compete in a prelims/finals format. 

The season will wrap up a little later than in years past as the USSBA Texas Championship is held Nov. 12 at a yet to be announced location in San Antonio. 

The schedule unveiling comes as three representatives from the association attend the annual conference to share the fantastic performance opportunities available this fall to Texas bands. George Hopkins, CEO of Youth Education in the Arts and founder of the USSBA, Sean King, director of the USSBA, and Jon Swengler, band relations representative for the department, are on site and available to talk with directors.
