On Saturday, October 1st the city of Kilgore hosted a gala at the Texan Theater to celebrate the city’s 150th anniversary. Members of the KHS orchestra were invited to attend the gala to provide music as dinner was served.

A total of eight students, along with orchestra director Sherry Paetznick, played music as a small string ensemble during the gala. They played a variety of songs such as “The Ash Grove” and “Believer.”

This is just one of many events that the orchestra is excerpted to play at this year. Please come support the KHS Orchestra at their upcoming concert on October 24th at Kilgore Middle School!
