Wow! A Longview High School sophomore is the only student in Texas to earn All-Area honors on two instruments. Robdrick Halton placed 2nd statewide on the contra-bass clarinet, immediately after placing 1st in the All-Region competition, and qualifying for All-Area! This young man also plays the French Horn -- in which he earned All-Region and All-Area honors. Robdrick is the only student in Texas in 2012 to qualify  for All-Area on two different instruments from two different musical families.

The Director of Bands, Lois Robinett stated:

“We’re very proud of the work that Robdrick has done this year. He is a very talented and driven musician.”

Simply amazing! We are proud of him too!
