Hofius Hawks Sweep Competition at First Music UIL Competition
Hofius Intermediate’s Fine Arts programs swept the competition in the school’s first-ever UIL competition season. As a first-year school, the band, choir, and orchestra groups all brought home trophies for earning sweepstakes.
Each program director started from scratch this year as talent from Hildebrandt, Krimmel, and Ulrich fed into Hofius when it opened its doors in August 2018. The dedication of the leaders and learners was clear from the start.
“I was happy with their performance regardless of what their scores were, so the scores were just the icing on the cake,” choir director Natallie Busi said.
In addition to mastering their instruments, sheet music, and finding their rhythm, the learners have also realized the importance of building positive and productive relationships and being goal-oriented.
“That constant push and grind of wanting to get better has been really inspiring and taught me how to make better friendships and work as a team,” seventh grader and cello player RJ Lux said.
The school’s Fine Arts wing was recently dedicated to a beloved member of our Klein Family, Lyle Lovett. The singer, songwriter, actor, and record producer expressed how proud he was of the school’s achievements.

“That’s a tremendous accomplishment, and that makes me really proud,” he said. “It’s inspiring just to see young people interested in the arts, so to see them excel and get some recognition for it is even better.”
Although we know that the talent will continue to grow at Hofius Intermediate, the true triumph is the endless pursuit of passion.
“When we talk about every kid being able to exit with a purpose in Klein ISD, Fine Arts is such an important part of that,” Deputy Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown said. “There are so many kids whose purpose, what they get up for in the morning, is the instrument that they play or the song they sing.”
