This year AHS has four All State Orchestra Students!!! Each year, hundreds of high school musicians audition for a spot in one of the All State groups. Being selected to one of these groups is the highest honor given to a high school musician in the state of Texas! This year, our All State Orchestra Students are:
Christopher L. (Viola)
Hannah P. (Viola)
Benjamin L. (Viola)

What's even better is that all four of these students made the top orchestra, the All State Symphony!
