John H. Guyer High School - Denton, TX

Welcome to the Guyer Orchestra website!

Since its inception in 2005, the Orchestra Program at Guyer High School has established itself as a force to be reckoned with in North Texas. Rhapsody, the Varsity ensemble, has twice ranked as a finalist in the elite Texas Honor Orchestra Competition, initially in 2009-2010 (ranking 10th as a 4A school), and again in 2016-2017 (ranking 8th as a 6A). In 2009 and 2017, the orchestra received National recognition when they were named "National Winners" in the Mark of Excellence National Honors Program.. Excellence, enjoyment, responsibility, and integrity are the core principles that drive the success of this program. With these principles, we continue to fulfill our mission of providing Guyer students with the highest quality string program possible.
