State Solo and Ensemble Contest - Band and Choir
Eighty Weatherford High School students competed in the State UIL Choir or Band Solo and Ensemble competitions. For all, it was the culmination of hours upon hours of practice; and for some, it was their last time to represent Roo Nation at the highest level. Congratulations to all of our students who competed in the State competition!
- 51 Band Students medaled at the event

Check back here for a schedule of events for the 2023-2024 school year.
Band instruction begins in the sixth grade. In high school, students have the opportunity to participate in the Fightin' Roo Marching Band that performs at all varsity football games and selected contests. In the fall of 2022, the Marching Band earned the Sweepstakes award and advanced to the UIL Area competition.
The award-winning Blue Belles dance team are 41 years strong! Under the direction of Laura Buckner, the Belles are the showcase of Weatherford High School. Students may begin taking dance while in middle school. The Belles are active in the community, participating in parades and volunteering at the Parker County Sheriff's Posse Frontier Days Rodeo.
While students may experience participation in an elementary choir, they really begin to develop more serious vocal training at the intermediate school in sixth grade. As their voices develop, students will experience a full range of musical styles. Emphasis is placed on the development of proper vocal techniques, the study of choral techniques, basic music theory, sight-singing, music history and literature, creative self-expression, and vocal performance.
2023-2024 Choir Dates Coming Soon!
