• Hello All!


    Orchestra Auditions are upon us! Auditons for all who are signed up for orchestra next year take place the week of May 13-17, 2019. Wednesday will be the only day I will not hold audtions due to a mandatory department meeting I must attend.


    Incoming Freshman, please bring proof of you having registered for classes here at Lamar High School.


    There are two Orchestra here at Lamar:


    Chamber Orchestra - this is the varsity ensemble consisting of advanced string players. You are only admitted into this group through audition only.


    Philharmonic Orchestra - this is the non-varsity ensemble consisting of players ranging from beginners to intermediate players



    You will be placed in one of these ensembles based on your audition.


    You will play the following for me in your audtion:


    - Both Varsity or Non Varsity excerpts

    - Sight-reading Excerpt; this will be a short piece of my choosing so that I can assess your sight-reading skills



    I will announce audition results the following Monday, May 20th on this page. 


    Below you will find the files for both Varsity and Non Varsity excerpts. There is also a file for you to sign up for a time slot. I will update this file daily to reflect open and taken slots. Please email Ms. Houston at khousto6@houstonisd.org to reserve your time slot!



    Ms. Houston

    Director of Orchestras
