Klein High Orchestra Earns Top Distinction
Oct 27 2016 - 03:43:00 pm


Congratulations to the Klein High School Chamber Orchestra, and directors Creston Herron and Tanatchaya Chanphanitpornkit, for being named as the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) 2016-17 Honor String Orchestra. This honor is equivalent to being named state champion.

 

When school resumed in Aug. 2016, these students began preparing their selections and held a taping concert Oct. 14, 2016, only eight weeks after school started. They submitted their tape along with 46 other schools across the state and earned the Honor Orchestra selection for the state. As a result, they will now prepare a program and perform at the TMEA Convention in San Antonio in Feb. 2017.

 

The Klein High School Chamber Orchestra is now the 36th Klein ISD Music Ensemble selected to perform at the TMEA Convention since 1986, the most for any school district. Remarkably, this is the very first time that any Klein ISD high school string orchestra has been honored in this capacity. Past campuses selected include: Hildebrandt ('86, '88) and Doerre ('04) Intermediate String Orchestras, Klein Oak ('89, '93, '95), Klein Forest ('90, '94), and Klein High ('98, '01, '03, '08) Full Orchestras have also been selected previously.
