Philharmonic and Chamber Orchestra UIL Rehearsal and Pizza Party

Our students are working very hard on their UIL Music and doing a great job preparing for one of our biggest events of the year!

We have been given an amazing opportunity for our students to work with some of the finest directors in our area before we go to contest in April. I am always grateful for the opportunity for our kids to get guidance from some of my colleagues!

We will be adding one date to our calendar in the month of March. It is very important for all students to be at this rehearsal so that we can be at our very best for UIL…and I can guarantee it will be an experience they won’t want to miss and we’ll feed your kids dinner! Here are the details –
