All-State Band Member

The Association of Texas Small School Bands is pleased to announce the selection of CONNOR ARD to the 2021 ATSSB All-State Band.  


More than 10,000 high school band students from across Texas auditioned in twenty-two different regions for a place in their respective all-region bands. The top chairs in each region advanced to one of the five area auditions held across the state and only 306 of these 2,398 students were selected for all-state honors.  


The ATSSB All-State Bands will meet in rehearsals in Melissa, Texas, June 9-12, 2021, and will present a concert beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 12, 2021, in the Melissa Performance Hall. 


In 2017, Troup High School had three students earn chairs in the ATSSB All State Band.  Matthew Castillo, Jesus Cordero, and Mariana Gatlin.
