CONGRATULATIONS to Senior Tyler Ruthemeyer for qualifying for the 2016 ATSSB Texas All-State Band. For band members, becoming an all-state band member is the pinnacle of individual achievement in music. There is no higher honor. Tyler qualified to the Area Round through Region auditions in December. This past weekend, Tyler traveled to Chappell Hill High School in Tyler, TX where the East Texas Area auditions were held and competed against the best UIL 1A-4A and all classifications of private school band students. He took first chair bassoon in the entire East Texas Area and now will go to the All-State Band Clinic and Concert held in conjunction with the Texas Music Educator's Association (TMEA) Clinic and Conference in San Antonio in February. Tyler is only the second instrumentalist in LSA's history to achieve this feat!
