Operating as usual


The bet was who could raise more money. The stakes were students choosing my facial hair or I get to keep my beard. Between the audience members of the November concert and myself (donating toward my own cause), an amount of $500 was raised to help send students to Summer music camps. You to everyone who donated!

I want to be clear- I won. I, along with those who hade mercy on my poor face, raised $4 more than those against me. The students were suspicious of and cross about this turn of events, so a compromise was struck. This is what “winning” looks like.

ASTA-OK - Summer Camps 05/27/2020

Orchestra students and parents: here is a summer camp opportunity for you to consider. Mrs Contreras (our former middle school teacher) has asked us to share it with you. It will be a wonderful opportunity for younger students to gain some new techniques and knowledge. There are some excellent educators helping with the camp also! Hope you can attend!

ASTA-OK - Summer Camps The Oklahoma Chapter of the American String Teacher Association invites all violin, viola, cello, and bass students in their 1st - 4th year of string instruction for a fun, few days of music! Campers will participate in large group orchestra and chamber rehearsals, sectionals, performances, and othe...


Many apologies for the delay in posting. Just want to congratulate these 4 outstanding musicians for being chosen to this year’s all-state Orchestra! What a fabulous achievement that is well-deserved for them all! The concert was absolutely wonderful and enjoyed by all in attendance! Students listed left to right are Alex Park, Hwanee Hwang, Caden Stine and Sylvan Zhang! 👏🏻


Congratulations to the Stillwater 8th grade Stillwater Freshman orchestras! They each earned superior ratings from all the judges at OSSAA state contest on Tuesday- both on stage and in sight-reading.

A note from Mr. Jackson:

To all students- Bravo on a wonderful concert! Your work in rehearsals brought a beautiful, fun night of entertainment on Tuesday.

Thank you parents for your support of these fantastic students in their musical endeavors. Our classes will keep playing with care and joy each day to make every concert even better.

Finally, a huge thanks to the Orchestra Booster Club and all the extra volunteer help we had to bring this event to life! Their efforts helped net $1,950.00 of profit for the OBC! $550.00 of that was the facial hair fundraising effort, and here is the result (questionable style choice that it may be judged)!

Thank you all again!

Scott Jackson

And from the Orchestra Booster Club:

Many thanks to all for a fabulously successful evening! We hope everyone enjoyed the food, fun and, most importantly, the music! 🎵🎶. Thank you to Dan Purdy for taking care of us with our dinner - everyone totally enjoyed the food, as always!


Hello everyone! Just wanted to let you all know that we have a fabulous supply of our vinyl orchestra stickers available for purchase! They look great on the car or a tumbler or even your students personal instrument case or folder! We will have them available for $10 each at the Boots, Black-Tie and BBQ dinner next Tuesday or you can purchase them through your student’s teacher. Show support for your favorite Orchestra student with our logo!

PS - this is also the logo that is on our student’s jackets! 😊


Hello! We will be having an OBC meeting Tuesday, November 5th to finalize plans for the Boots, Black Tie and BBQ event next week. If you are able to attend, we would love to see you there at 5:30 in the orchestra classroom!

What a fabulous evening! Thank you all for coming out and enjoying the fun. Here are some highlights from the Halloween Costume concert this evening!


It seems that your donation dollars for the Orchestra Booster Club will determine whether the I conduct the finale of the show in a ballerina’s tutu or a formal evening gown...two large jars on stage for voting, two frightening choices!


Our 1st OBC meeting of the year will be next Tuesday, September 17th at 5:30 pm in the high school orchestra room. We would love to see you there!

Representative Trish Ranson said it best: “The Oklahoma House and Senate recognized these amazing seniors today! 9 teams (including band and orchestra) made academic all state this year. That’s amazing! And they’re not done yet. Could be 12 by year end. So proud of these kids and their teachers and administrators!”


Way to go, SHS orchestra students!

Stillwater’s 9th - 12th grade Orchestra posed the highest GPA (3.849) of any submitting OSSAA orchestra program for the sixth straight year. It is a privilege to work with these wonderful students!
