Orchestra Students Dominated All-Region

Congratulations to the student musicians of the Clements Orchestras who were selected to the All-Region ensembles this weekend. Clements had a record 52 students selected, almost twice as many as the next schools represented, and accounting for 40% of the total region membership!  They have worked very hard for this achievement, and all have qualified to continue in the All-State selection process.
