    Tivy Places 25 Musicians in Region Band

    Auditioning virtually this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, 24 Tivy High School band members earned spots in the Region 29 5A Band, while one musician earned a spot in the 6A Band.
    “Our amazing Tivy band students worked very hard through the challenges, like COVID-19, full time classes, and marching band, and they put in the extra hours to learn the music,” said head band director Roxanne Vickers.
    “Students recorded their audition segment, and it was then submitted for judging. This was a first for these students as these auditions are usually in person.”

    HPMS Musicians earn Region Honor Orchestra Honors

    Two Hal Peterson Middle School students earned spots in the TMEA Region 29 Middle School Honor Orchestra last month.

    Eighth graders Alexis Edgington and Rowyn Bowlby were placed in the top middle school region honor orchestra after submitting virtual auditions this year.

    “Both of these young ladies take private lessons outside of our school program. They are both long time members of the Hill Country Youth Orchestras and their hours of practice have truly paid off,” said HPMS Orchestra Director Karen Billingsley.

    “They are advanced players in our community and I look forward to seeing them grow as they leave middle school and go on to high school and more musical advancement.”
