I am the Band Director at Union County High School and we have done some amazing things so far this year!

Our Band Program has been involved in so many great things this year. Both Sims Middle and Union County High School received the highest rating of Superior in Performance at the South Carolina Band Director’s Association sponsored event known as Concert Performance Assessment. This is our version of state testing and with receiving Superior ratings, both schools were given the highest honors. This has been the first time in Band for both schools that either school has received a Superior rating, and we could not be more proud of our students.

Sims Middle School also took the seventh grade band and received an Excellent rating. It is the first time that a seventh grade has gone to Concert Performance Assessment from any school in Union County.

The high school competed in the inaugural season of Winter Guard International Indoor Winds as a member of the Carolina Indoor Performance Association. Union County Indoor Winds won first place at four of the five competitions in CIPA.

The band program has done so many great things this year and we are looking forward to building upon our successes next year as well! We already have many things in place and are very positive about the many new changes that our students are making for themselves in Union County.

Please look forward to seeing the band in the future and please continue to give these fine young men and women your community support! They deserve every bit of it!!
