It has been my honor and privilege to coach and conduct the Katy Texas-American Ensemble for this year. To be eligible, students had to be a member of Student Affiliate, complete a state-graded theory exam, learn the music, and audition. After all of this, they were required to attend rehearsals from late April through May.
There are so many of them! Yikes! Thirteen students from grades three through eight are participating. Five of them are from my studio. Here they are pictured with part of their costume. Full costume pics will be coming soon.
This is what concentration looks like!
This is what my unconventional conducting looks like!
