They placed more first chair students at the All City Audition and placed more students into the All City Band than any other middle school in HISD. Lanier also placed the most students into the All Region Band out of both HISD and Alief and placed the most wind instrument students into the Region Orchestra. The band successfully put on its first self-organized Solo and Ensemble Contest and received all “Superior” ratings at the National Music Festival in Dallas, Texas. The Lanier Polka Band won first place in the Houston Regional German Contest defeating the previous year’s state champion - a 5A High School!
