Ms. Sarah Reason
Recently appointed as the newest orchestra director for Robert E. Lee High School in Tyler ISD, Sarah Reason brings energy and charisma to the podium. In addition to her responsibilities at Robert E.

For her first two years in Tyler, Reason built a competitive orchestra program at Boulter Middle School doubling the recruitment and securing Superior ratings. Last year, she led the Robert E. Lee Orchestra in making school history for the program by earning sweepstakes with all three competing string orchestras. In her previous post in Abilene, TX, Reason led the orchestras at Mann Middle School earning sweepstakes throughout her five-year tenure. During her time in Abilene, she worked closely with the nationally renown ensemble, "Revolution," with its director, Darcy Radcliffe.

She plays in regional orchestras including the Longview Symphony Orchestra.
