Adrian Gamez advances to All-State Band

On Saturday, January 12th, Warrior Band trumpeter Adrian Gamez competed against 21 of the area’s finest players at the TMEA Area Band auditions held at Texas A&M University. This competition hosts the best musicians from Corpus Christi, Laredo, Victoria, and the Rio Grande Valley. Of the 21 trumpet players, only 3 are allowed to advance to All-State which will be hosted in San Antonio, Texas on February 13th through the 16th. Adrian Gamez placed in the top 3 and is now a TMEA All-State musician.

The Warrior Band has not had an All-State musician in 15 years. “The TMISD band staff are very proud and excited for Adrian!” Said Raymond Chapa Jr, the head band director. “Another impressive fact to this accomplishment is that Adrian is a sophomore! Bravo!!”
