The Johnston Middle School orchestra, under the direction of Dr. Kathryn Brown, received all superior ratings in both concert and sight-reading at the recent UIL event. This orchestra program has received these same ratings for the past twenty three years.The judges had these comments -- "challenging program", "played musically and with confidence", "what an amazing sound", "outstanding performance." These students are excelling under the tutelage of Dr. Brown. She demands and receives the very best from her students and it shows in their performances.

Congratulations to the Johnston Orchestra.
