Welcome to the HEB Elementary Honor Orchestra home page! The HEB Elementary Honor Orchestra is designed to provide a weekly orchestra experience for Suzuki students in the HEB school district who were chosen through an audition process. Through their training and hard work at rehearsals the students will learn: correct rehearsal procedures; to read music more easily; both to work as a team and to be a leader; to polish pieces for performances; and to present polished performances. The Honor Orchestra has performed at the National Suzuki Association Leadership Training Meeting; Majestic Theater; Texas Music Educators Convention; and at the Meyerson Symphony Center.
The conductor of the Elementary Honor Orchestra is Vincent Pugh. Mr. Pugh is the Suzuki teacher at Bellaire Elementary and has conducted orchestras and honor orchestras in Kansas City, San Antonio, Austin and Arlington. Mr. Pugh really enjoys conducting youth orchestras and thinks one of the most exciting things in the world is to listen to young people perform with energy.
Congratulations on being selected for the orchestra! I am looking forward to working with you on some wonderful and challenging music this year!
