Students earn spots in TPSMEA Region/Honor orchestra

Congratulations to the Northland Christian Orchestra students who auditioned and earned a spot in TPSMEA Region/Honor orchestra, which will be held on Feb 22, 2020 in Dallas. We have 19 students representing Northland, from 6th grade-12th grade. They will practice for only 5 hours together with musicians from all over the North Region, working with guest clinicians from Rockwall ISD. They will then perform a concert in the evening.
