On Wednesday, March 10th, HPMS Philharmonic Orchestra earned Sweepstakes at the annual University Interscholastic League (UIL) Concert and Sightreading Contest at Nimitz High School. The highest honor at this competition. Works performed included Michael Hopkins’ Regal Overture, and Swing Low Sweet Chariot and Accents by Robert S. Frost.

The Music Program of the UIL is designed to support and enrich the teaching of music as an integral component of the public school curriculum in the state of Texas. Each year approximately one half million middle school and high school students reap the benefits of participation in these music events.
Our heartfelt gratitude to our supportive parents, private teachers, administration, and our amazing HPISD community for your support in helping these talented students achieve this remarkable accomplishment! #ExcellenceLivesHere
