The Plano West Chamber Orchestra is pleased to be named the state champion 2016 TMEA Honor String Orchestra! This win marks a record-tying 6th selection as a Texas honor orchestra. The Chamber Orchestra will now have the opportunity to perform at the TMEA Convention in San Antonio in February 2016.
We are also extremely proud of our two feeder high schools, Jasper HS (under the direction of Matt Moreno) and Shepton HS (under Joshua Thompson). Both schools made finals, marking the first time in the 65 year history of the competition that three orchestras from a single feeder system were named as finalists.
Congrats to the Plano West Orchestra students who successfully auditioned for All-Region today! Plano West earned more spots than any other school in the region! Students with a * next to their name have qualified to tape for All-State in 2 weeks. Students with a # are very close to taping — if other players elect not to tape, you may have the opportunity…. we’ll know more on Monday.
