danFine Arts News, High School News

TMEA Region 17 held auditions Mon., Nov. 17, 2014 at Alvin HS for the Wind and Percussion section of the Region Orchestra. Region 17 includes Friendswood, Alvin, Pearland, Brazosport, Clear Creek, Santa Fe, Texas City, Angleton, Dickinson, and Galveston ISD’s.

Friendswood had 13 students earn positions, a new record for Friendswood and I think the most by any one school in the region.

Out of the 13 students, 8 students earned 6A Area so they move on to the Area auditions in January. The other 6A Area positions in our region will be determined at our region band auditions in December.
