UIL Success

1819 NV UIL Photo4Heartiest congratulations to our Symphonic and Chamber orchestras for a maximally successful romp through UIL concert and sightreading competitions.  Both groups garnered the highest-possible ratings from all six judges. These top marks represent incredible work and focus required by all of our orchestra students.  This wouldn’t be possible without the outstanding support from our orchestra families, Killian community, and Lewisville ISD. Congratulations and thank you!
