Re: UIL Side by Side
Music is a curricular course in Texas thanks to the TEKS, and performances are a natural extension of most music courses. It's just like a science lab class that meets before or after school because they don't have the necessary time to complete the lab during the normal class time.
However, you could always assign an alternative assignments that's far more involved than simply showing up and performing, like listening to the recording of the concert and writing an informed critique or submitting a recording of that student's part for the entire concert program.
