I am very excited to share with you that after submitting our Legacy Orchestra’s fall concert into the state-wide competition known as TMEA Honor String Orchestra, we were once again selected as a state finalist and this year earned a rank as the #3 high school orchestra of Texas!
While Jasper orchestra frequently ranks in the top 10 of all Texas high school orchestras, it’s especially important to note that our Jasper kids are classified as a JV level group while going up against all other high school orchestras (9-12th grade) that are Varsity level. Any orchestra that ranks as a finalist in the TMEA contest is performing at near professional caliber and our students work incredibly hard to earn this distinction, in the first 8 weeks of school no less. I’ve uploaded 2 of the 4 pieces we performed to our Youtube channel if you would like to take a listen!
