Battleship Texas. This year, the orchestra performed as the pit
orchestra for the DPHS Theatre presentation of “Beauty and the Beast” last September. The production opened the third week of school. 19 students qualified for All-Region orchestra.
In the 2015-2016 school year, the Chamber and Symphony
Orchestras received sweepstakes at 2016 UIL concert and Sight Reading Contest; the Philharmonic received a superior rating and Maroon Orchestra received
an excellent rating. All orchestras were named Best Orchestra and Best in Class at the Alamo Showcase Festival in San Antonio. Eight students qualified for All-Region Orchestra, and
two advanced to Area Auditions. We also performed at the San Jacinto Day Reenactment
held on the site of this historical revolutionary battle as well as many other community performances throughout the year.
