Elementary Honor Orchestra
Vincent Pugh, Director of the Elementary Honor Orchestra
The Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD Elementary Honor Orchestra (EHO) is comprised of 5th and 6th grade string players. Vincent Pugh, Suzuki Strings teacher at Bellaire Elementary is currently the director of the Elementary Honor Orchestra. Members are selected by audition and are required to be a member of the HEB ISD Suzuki Program or studying privately. The group rehearses for one hour after school each week at Central JH to prepare for the numerous concerts given throughout the year.
The Elementary Honor Orchestra is designed to provide a weekly orchestra experience for Suzuki students in HEB ISD who were chosen through an audition process. Through their training and hard work at rehearsals the students will learn: correct rehearsal procedures; to read music more easily; both to work as a team and to be a leader; to polish pieces for performances; and to present polished performances.
