CHS Marching Band-BOA Super Regional Championship The CHS Marching Band performs their show, “The Fury,” under the watchful eye of a BOA judge on the field.

The CHS Marching Band surpassed its own impressive record earning the “Outstanding Music Performance” Award at the Bands Of America Super Regional Contest in San Antonio on Saturday, November 2.

“This is the first time that the band received any caption award and especially the most coveted of (Outstanding) Music,” said Scott Mason, CISD Director of Instrumental Music. “This also represents the first time in eight years that the Coppell Band was selected to the Finals of the BOA Super Regional.”

The Cowboys Band came in Sixth Place in the Preliminary round competing against what Mason describes as “64 of the finest 5A high school bands in Texas.” The band placed 12th in the Finals.

These results are all the more impressive since the CHS Band is the only band to make Finals without the use of theatrical props. Using only their marching skills and musical prowess, the band was able to edge out most bands in the competition.

“It is interesting to note that the Coppell Band was the only band not to use props at last year’s State Marching Contest to make Finals and also at this year’s BOA Super Regional,” stated Mason.

The band takes a well-deserved break this week and resumes practice on Friday afternoon to prepare for the last game of the regular football season in Lewisville that evening.
