About Orchestra

Brief History:

The Tomball High School Orchestra program has been around for over 10 years, starting with 6th graders only during the 2008-2009 school year, and has continued to grow since. The Tomball HS Orchestra program, and its feeders, have over 400 members enrolled between grades 6-12. Our programs continue to earn UIL Sweepstakes, participate in UIL Solo & Ensemble Contest, and participate in other social and community and events!


Tomball High School Feeders:

Tomball HS is fed by three campuses, Creekside Park JH (6th - 8th), and Tomball JH (7th & 8th) which is fed by Tomball Intermediate (6th), and Grand Lakes JH (7th & 8th); THS currently gets 20% of Grand Lakes JH students. All junior high programs have three to four performing ensembles in addition to the homogeneous beginner classes. 


About Tomball High School Orchestra:

Tomball High School Orchestra has six performing ensembles: Full Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, Philharmonic Orchestra,  Concert Orchestra, Concert Red Orchestra, & Sinfonietta Orchestra. Members are placed in ensembles through continued evaluation that may include an audition process. We have incredibly high standards for all students and hold our members to a higher standard that will help them post high school.
