Concert and Symphonic Band - January 20, 2023
All Region Jazz Results
On Tuesday evening, students from the Jazz Band auditioned for the All-Region Jazz Band. This is a prestigious individual competition that involves students from our Region (Frisco, Little Elm, Prosper, and McKinney). This is the first year that students from Pearson have attended the All Region Jazz audition. Two students were selected to be members of the All-Region Jazz Band!! Please join us in congratulating these students on their hard work and perseverance.

FISD Solo Contest
All students in Concert and Symphonic Band are required to perform in the Frisco ISD Solo Contest on Saturday February 4th. The event begins at 9:00am and ends around 3:00pm. Students will have an individual performance time that will be shared with you ASAP. This is a district-run contest that 6 middle schools are participating in. We do have a little bit of flexibility with the schedule, so if your student has another activity that day and you would like to request a specific time of day or time slot, please email Mr. Jenson ASAP. The contest is at Stafford Middle School.
This is a Frisco ISD event, so there is a fee associated with the contest. Please pay the $10 entry fee on Online School Fees by TODAY Friday January 20th. This is a firm deadline that is set by Frisco ISD and late payment will not be accepted. It is listed in Online School Fees as District Fine Arts 2022-2023 MS Band Solo Event -2/4/23.
High School Band Information
Parents of 8th grade students - our hope is that your student chooses to be part of the Reedy or Frisco High School Band! The high school bands are fantastic organizations where your kid can be surrounded by like-minded high-achieving students, where they can make great friends, and where they have the opportunity for leadership!
We know that our Pearson Band students are involved in many different activities. They can continue to do those activities in addition to band in high school. Any activity can be combined with band! Below are some examples of 4-Year Plans that show how band can be scheduled with advanced academics, athletics, and other classes. The below plans specify Frisco High School, but will apply to any Frisco ISD high school.
Please let Mrs. Black and Mr. Jenson know if you have questions about high school band. We both believe that band is one of the best things your student can be a part of in high school and hope they choose to continue.
