The Brook Hill Orchestra Department has been very busy!
The Varsity Orchestra started off last week with two performances at the Founder’s Day celebration – first playing for the Q & A reception and then providing prelude music before the MW Smith concert. Not only did this involve the students learning a repertoire of 15 pieces, but also equipment set-up & transporting.
Selected orchestra members from both MS & US finished out the week with participation in the 2013 TMEA (Texas Music Educators Association) All-Region Orchestra auditions. All-Region auditions were held this past Saturday, Oct 19th at Grace Community High School where hundreds of public, private & home school string students from 8+ cities competed to place in the TMEA Middle School or High School Region Orchestra.
Brook Hill MS violinists, Hannah Windsor & Colm Conneen and violist, Joanna Zhu earned spots in the MS All-Region Orchestra. Earning placement in the HS All-Region Orchestra were violinist, Bailey Bickerstaff, violist, Taylor Kennedy and cellist, Alex Ellis!!
Congratulations to our six Brook Hill Orchestra members for making the TMEA 2013 All-Region Orchestras!!
You can hear these outstanding musicians in their 2013 Region Concert on Saturday, December 7th at Longview HS, 4:30pm performance.
