All-District Band Concert Recording

Please enjoy these wonderful recordings from the Prosper ISD all-district concert.

All-Region Jazz Auditions

On Tuesday evening, students from our district (Frisco, Little Elm, McKinney and Prosper) competed against each other for a spot in the MS All-Region Jazz Band. I am happy to announce that Rogers had 2 of the 33 students who made the band. This is a tremendous honor. These students will participate in a clinic and concert on Saturday Jan. 20 at Prosper High School.

Please congratulate these following students:

  • Emihl DuPlooy - 6th Chair Jazz Trumpet
  • Garrett Shannon - 7th Chair Jazz Trombone

These students are very talented and we are unbelievably proud of them for this achievement.
