The Allen High School Orchestra has been selected as the 2014 winner of the American Prize in Orchestral performance in the high school orchestra division.
The orchestra, taught and conducted by David DeVoto, was selected from applications reviewed over the summer from all over the United States. The American Prize is a series of non-profit competitions designed to recognize and reward the best performing artists, ensembles and composers in the United States based on submitted recordings.
“The sound and style is breathtaking; fantastic performance,” was one comment by a judge evaluating the orchestra’s performance.
The American Prize was founded in 2009 and is awarded annually in many areas of the performing arts. For more information about The American Prize, visit the Web site: http://www.theamericanprize.org .
