Sarah and Thomas Trausch of Red Oak received their Eleven Year Ensemble Participation Award at the Texas Music Teachers Association Convention in June at the Dallas-Fort Worth Hyatt Regency.

Student affiliate members of TMTA, Sarah and Thomas, were each presented with an engraved plaque and cash award of $100 at the ensemble. Their group was one of many ensemble teams from across the state that performed in eight different programs through the three-day convention.

The brother and sister played on a stage filled with 15 grand pianos from the Dallas Southwest Music Teachers Association group. They performed “Slavonic Dance Op. 46 No. 1” by Dvorak.

Sarah and Thomas are the children of Pam and Pat Trausch of Red Oak and the piano students of Theresa Davis of Waxahachie.
