Brandeis High School opened in August 2008. This outstanding school is part of the Northside Independent School District in Texas. Brandeis High School supports three orchestras: Brandeis Symphony Orchestra (BSO), Chamber Orchestra, Concert Orchestra- which are composed of the school’s best and most accomplished students. These students come to Brandeis from the Garcia Middle School Orchestra program directed by Brenda Johnson and the Stinson Middle School Orchestra program directed by Susan Robbins.
Many of the members of this orchestra have been recognized as outstanding musicians, having been members of various TMEA Orchestras. Many students have also auditioned and have been selected to participate in several organizations which draw from the best youth musicians in the greater San Antonio area. This orchestra program is under the direction of Mr. Kevin Garcia-Hettinger.
