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. Lee, Reason is also an associate conductor with the East Texas Youth Orchestra directing the Philharmonic Orchestra, a full orchestra geared towards junior high students. 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.

An accomplished violinist, Reason remains active in orchestral and chamber performances throughout the region and maintains a thriving private studio. She plays in regional orchestras including the Longview Symphony Orchestra.
