The Honor Board

Welcome to the Texas Bands Honor Board. This is a "board in progress." With the help of band directors who read and
post on The Yellow Board, I am attempting to construct a reference site for information and research.  Scroll down to view
Texas Bands that have accomplished distinction by recognition as a TMEA Honor Band, Sudler Winner, in nationally
recognized parade appearances, (such as the Rose Bowl Parade, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and Orange Bowl
Parade) and Midwest Bands and Orchestra Clinic performances. To submit a band, program, or event involving a Texas
Band for recognition to The Honor Board, or to sponsor The Honor Board, please contact Steve Hankins at:
