Past Texas Orchestra Director of the Year Award Winners

 

The TODA Orchestra Director of the Year Award (ODY) is presented annually at the TODA Convention to a teacher with
a distinguished career in an orchestral setting. Nominees must exemplify outstanding lifetime leadership and
achievement as an orchestra director in Texas.  Each year the TODA Board of Directors selects an orchestra director or
teacher who has served his or her profession nobly and selflessly, leaving the mark of love, kindness, and good
musicianship on the students he or she has trained.
