All-Region Band  
Twenty-two Granbury High School Band members performed with the All-Region Bands during a concert held January 30, 2016, at Burleson Centennial High School.
Students from GHS and Crossland Ninth Grade Center performing with the region ensembles were:
  • Symphonic Band: Reece Ahler, trombone; Lauren Boleng, flute; Melanie Boleng, clarinet; Ian Cone, French horn; Reagan Hall, percussion; Kalvin Hughes, tenor saxophone; Aaron Morgan, tuba; Brennan Ross, French horn
  • Concert Band: Fernando Barragan, euphonium; Mikayla Hamilton, clarinet; Alex Inbody, clarinet; Mallory Irish, flute; Emma McKelvain, alto saxophone; Henry Shannon, trumpet; Rayni Skaggs, clarinet; Lily Thornton, French horn
  • Ninth Grade Band:  Max Beckley, bass trombone (first chair); Meghan Childers, percussion; Hunter Harrison, trumpet; Hannah Myers, oboe; Savannah Oliver, alto saxophone; Angelina Pena, percussion
Of this group, nine – Ahler, Lauren Boleng, Melaine Boleng, Cone, Hall, Hughes, Irish, Morgan, and Ross – advanced to the Area B tryouts held in January.  Lauren Boleng and Morgan both eventually qualified for All-State bands.  The two – along with Hall – also performed with the All-Region Orchestra on January 16 at Fort Worth Paschal High School.
Guest clinicians and conductors for the region bands were:  Fred J. Allen, director of bands at Stephen F. Austin State University; Jeff Bradford, fine arts director for Richardson ISD; Cindy Lansford, a retired who taught in the Birdville, Plano, and Goose Creek school districts.
