A Note from Ms. Thwaites

Dear KHS Orchestra Families, Friends, and Sponsors,

My name is Mary Evelyn Thwaites, and I am your new Director of Orchestras here at Katy High School. I most recently taught JH and HS orchestra (grades 6-12) in another district. I have heard wonderful things about our orchestras, and the support we receive from members, parents, and our community. I am super excited for our year ahead!

You will notice that our website: has a brand new look. I invite you to take a few minutes to view the site. It is still a work in progress--more forms and information will be added as I settle into the rhythm of KHS. Please view our supply list and our 2021-2022 Handbook, which are both located under the Forms tab. If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

Lastly, I know you have all been patiently waiting for your audition results from Spring auditions. Those results can be found on the home page of our website. I was not the adjudicator, so I am (unfortunately) unable to answer any specific questions you may have about placements or the audition process itself. If for some reason your name is not on one of our orchestra rosters, please contact me ASAP so I can resolve that issue.

I can't wait to meet all of you, and to start making music together!


Ms. Thwaites
