Middle School Orchestra Students Earn All Region

Nov 13, 2017

On Saturday, October 28, orchestra students from all Frisco ISD middle schools participated in the TMEA Region 24 All-Region Orchestra auditions. Widely known to be the most competitive region in the state of Texas, to be accepted into one of the three orchestras is a tremendous accomplishment, says Julie Blackstock, orchestra director for Liberty High School and Lead Orchestra Teacher for the District. 

Almost 1,100 students auditioned and ultimately only 289 are selected. This year 130 FISD students were accepted into these very prestigious ensembles. "Our percentage of acceptances increased quite a bit from last year. We are very proud of all the students and teachers who went through the process." Blackstock said.
