Curtis Middle School Full Orchestra 2018-19 started this petition to TMEA

The Curtis Middle School Honor Orchestra of 2018-19 recently performed at the TMEA Honor Orchestra competition and was able to receive first place in state. This is a great accomplishment for Curtis Middle School, as it is the first time our symphonic orchestra has achieved the first rank. However, it has come to our attention that we, as the former eighth graders, are not eligible for the TMEA performance in San Antonio since we attend a new campus for the freshmen.

This would mean that more than half of the full orchestra that was present for the competition would not be included, leaving a large section of the ensemble missing. Although other Allen middle schools such as Ereckson have been able to still perform without the eighth graders, this would not work with Curtis. Individually, many of us lack skills and cannot play without others. What made us a great generation was the bond each of us shared with each other. We may not be great alone, but together we managed to overcome all difficulties and achieve this award.

For this reason we ask an arrangement be made to allow the entirety of the 2018-19 Curtis MS Honor Orchestra to attend the performance in San Antonio. The orchestra is not complete without every person present to give it their all. Even if after this petition we are still not allowed, we thank you for your consideration.
