The VHS band recently won two first division trophies at marching contests.

The Vidor High School band has always been a commanding force, drawing attention for their snappy drills, precise marching, stirring music, and of course, traditions which include a yearly lights out performance, a Homecoming parade exhibition, and the famous closing chorus from Slavonic Folk Suite. The traditions continued this year, under the capable leadership of new Director of Fine Arts Ms. Kara Phillips.

The Mighty Pirate Marching Band, twirlers, and Brigadettes recently took home some pretty big honors for the hard work they’ve done thus far during the school year, including division one superior ratings at two marching contests. The first was UIL (University Interscholastic League), which was held October 20 at Port Neches Groves High School. All three judges gave the group division one rankings, offering comments such as “Very nice job!” “Good group!” and “Many great players in this group. Well done!” Judges also said, “Nice drill. Great job with the execution,” and “nice band sound!”
