RECOGNITIONS

I would like to recognize some orchestra members for their recent achievements:


REGION 23 Orchestra Members

Tyler Kang

Sal Reyes (Alt.), but advanced to record for All-State Orchestra


HOUSTON YOUTH SYMPHONY MEMBERS (2021-2022 Season)

Tyler Kang

Abel Sliman


These students put in hours and hours of time and effort on their instruments, auditioned, and were selected as members of these orchestras. I am SO PROUD of them!


Next year, I hope to see even more of our talented students in these prestigious ensembles.
