“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle

The MHS Orchestra program began in 2006-2007 school year with 6 students. As we enter our 10th year of Orchestra at MHS we have grown to an incredible 175 students under the direction of Fawn Sorgi and as of last year, Meara O’Neill. Although the MHS Orchestra program is relatively new to McKinney, it has established a tradition of excellence and quality of musical performance.

The MHS Orchestra has received straight I Superior ratings at every competition we have ever attended. The success of the MHS orchestra program centers on the pursuit of excellence, pride, commitment to learning, and the willingness to work hard to achieve a common goal. Our mission is to provide the highest quality string program possible.
