Middle School Orchestra Students Earn All-Region Spots

Dec 13, 2019

This fall, students from all 17 Frisco ISD middle schools participated in the competitive Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) Region 24 All-Region Middle School Orchestra auditions.

Region 24 is known around the state as being the most competitive orchestra region in Texas. Close to 1,200 students from Frisco, Plano and Prosper ISDs annually compete for spots.

The official process began on the first day of school with the release of several musical excerpts and the students worked diligently throughout the fall.

To be awarded a place in any of the three orchestras is a tremendous accomplishment. Much hard work, practice and dedication was needed and the work of these students is to be commended.

The District is incredibly proud of all the students who went through the process and is proud for the students ultimately accepted.
