Samuel Ortez - All State Trumpet

I am so happy and honored to tell you all that Samuel Ortez, Junior trumpet, advanced to the Texas All State Band this past Saturday! This is such a huge accomplishment for so many reasons! 
The last time the Aldine Band had an All-Stater was 2001! It has been almost 20 years! The process for making the All-State band is not easy at all. Samuel auditioned back in December against over 100 other trumpets from our district. Samuel won 1st chair over all!!  This advanced him to the area round this past Saturday. There he competed against almost 50 other trumpets, who happen to be the top trumpets from all over North Houston, Cy-Fair, Conroe, and all the way to Beaumont! Samuel ended up 3rd overall out of the 7 taken to state!! There were over 2300 trumpet students alone who auditioned in this process this year and Samuel will be one of the top 40! We are so proud of all of his hard work and dedication to playing his trumpet! Success breed Success!! Here's to hoping this is the start to many many years of students making the Texas All State Bands from Aldine High School!
