**I have more wonderful news to share about our orchestra students. This past weekend, judging was held for the TMEA Texas All-State Orchestra- Area Competition and the official results have been released.

All-State is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. 1,600 students are selected through a process that begins with over 65,000 students from around the state vying for this honor to perform in one of 15 ensembles (bands, orchestras, and choirs). This competitive process begins throughout the state in auditions hosted by 31 TMEA Regions. Individual musicians perform selected music for a panel of judges who rank each instrument or voice part. From this ranking, a select group of musicians advances from their Region to compete against musicians from other Regions in seven TMEA Area competitions. The highest-ranking musicians judged at the TMEA Area competitions qualify to perform in a TMEA All-State music group. These All-State students participate in three days of rehearsals directed by nationally recognized conductors during the annual state TMEA Clinic/Convention. Their performances before thousands of attendees bring this extraordinary event to a close.

While most high schools might have a couple of students make All-State, Jasper alone has a record TWELVE students who earned this title! This is the highest honor for a high school music students and was no easy task for any of them as they each put around 300 hours of practice towards their audition. Their names are listed below and I hope that you will find a chance to congratulate each of them. They will take part in an unforgettable performance come February.

**I am very excited to share with you that after submitting Jasper into the state wide competition known as TMEA Honor String Orchestra, the Legacy Orchestra was selected a finalist over the weekend and once again placed as the number two high school orchestra of Texas!

While Jasper orchestra has frequently ranked in the top 2 of all Texas high school orchestras, I need to remind everyone that we are an anomaly.  These are 9th and 10th graders earning this status while going up against high schools that are 9-12th grade, meaning we are technically a JV level orchestra placing higher than Varsity level groups.

I am constantly in awe of the amazing things our kids at Jasper are capable of.  Any orchestra that ranks as a finalist in the TMEA contest is performing at a near professional level and our students work so hard every year, in the first 7 weeks of school no less, to earn that status.

**This past Saturday was the Orchestra All-Region auditions. I’m happy to let everyone know that out of the 800 students from all the Plano and Frisco High Schools (9-12 grade) who competed for a place in the orchestras, 35 of our Jasper students earned a spot as well as 6 other students placing as an alternate! 14 of those students also earned a high enough ranking to audition at the All-State level in two weeks. The Jasper orchestra students had a more than impressive showing as they took a large portion of spots in the All-Region orchestras.  Below are those students. Please help me in congratulating them if you have them in your class.

**Region Choir Results:
Congratulations to all of the students who auditioned for Region Choir this past weekend. This is quite a big event just six weeks from the beginning of school! These kids have been practicing diligently – at home and school .  Thank you for your support of these students as they work to achieve their goal of making the Region Choir. We have so many talented students that are not placed in a choir. There is a big adjustment in the material and time frame experience from middle school to high school audition. This is in addition competing against juniors and seniors, allergies and colds that have hit and as always the “fear factor” aka nerves! I could not be prouder of the dedication and commitment from any of our students who take on this challenge regardless of placement. Way to go Jags!

Pre-Area Mixed Choir (these students advance to the next audition in November and will perform on the Region Concert )
Sophie Albert, Tim Anderson, Shivesh Basu, Avantika Chellury, Alex Collier, Daniela Diano, Paige Evans, Jack Forden, Parsa Maboudian, Rishi Malhotra, Chetan Moghe, Vilasini Nayar, Novin Nekoui and Megan Simmons.
