2019-2020 Audition Results

Dear Orchestra Members,

Below are the orchestra placements for the 2019-2020 school year.A great deal of thought and consideration has been put in to these placements and we want you to know that each of you were placed in an ensemble that will give you the most opportunity for your musical growth to shine.

Please remember:

1)  The Jasper Orchestra auditions are very competitive because of the very high quality of  training you all receive at Rice and Robinson. There are also all of the current 9th graders auditioning for these spots as well.  The upside of this is that all of our orchestras are very much above average for their level and will be a rewarding musical environment for you.

2)  You are so much more than simply a member in the ensemble.  Regardless of what class you are in, take it as an opportunity to excel and distinguish yourself in a positive manner. We will have some great experiences!


Later on next week, you will all be receiving some music from our first concert next year if you’re looking for something to practice over the summer. Have a great summer, and I can’t wait to see everyone next year!
