Kramer & van Til Earn Seats in All-State Band!

Emma Kramer, on French horn, and Alex van Til, on trombone, will perform in the All-State Band concert during the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) Convention on Saturday, Feb. 16 at 9:00 am in the Lila Cockrell Theater in San Antonio. This concert is free and open to the public. (If you wish to attend, it is recommended that you allow at least one extra hour prior to the concert time to handle traffic and parking.)  
 
This is Alex van Til's third time to be selected for All-State Band and to perform during the TMEA Convention. This accomplishment earns him a $500 scholarship from ATSSB, which will be presented immediately following the All-State Concert Band's performance on Feb. 16.
 
Other Thrall HS students who earned prestigious Area honors include: 
 
Bill Renfro - 5th chair trombone
 
Jersie Cavender - 6th chair trumpet
 
Luke Marx - 9th chair percussion

Congratulations to all of these students for going above and beyond in preparing this very difficult audition music and representing Thrall HS in such an awesome way!
 
Also, congratulations to Beth Morrison and Bana Estes, Tiger Band Directors, for their leadership and guidance of these fine musicians!
