The Memorial Sinfonia, under the direction of Danielle Prontka and Matthew Chan, has been honored by the Texas Music Educators Association with an invitation to perform at its convention in San Antonio Feb. 10. An invitation from the TMEA represents one of the highest levels of recognition in music education. The Memorial Sinfonia, with its 30 students, was the runner-up at the National Orchestra Cup Competition in New York City. The Memorial Sinfonia will perform for the community at a free preview concert of the TMEA performance on Feb. 7 at 7 p.m. in the Memorial High School Auditorium.
