Mrs. Sabrina Behrens

I am the Director of Orchestras at Travis High School.  I have previously taught at Clements High School, Bowie Middle School, Bush High School and Garcia Middle School.  

I have frequently assisted the surrounding districts by hosting regional and state events including sectionals and masterclasses, and I am consistently in demand as a respected area judge, clinician and conductor.  I have also served as a respected chaperone and assistant conductor to other orchestra programs in the district, having performed at locales ranging from Orlando, Florida to Austria and the Czech Republic.  In 2010, I had the privledge of conducting the Clements Chamber Strings at the Midwest Clinic in Chicago, IL.  I made my international conducting debut in March of 2018 conducting the Fort Bend ISD Honor Orchestra in Budapest, Vienna and Prague.

As a student at Bryan High School, I was selected as a member of the Texas All-State Orchestra in both 1995 and 1997.  I received my degree in Music Education from Baylor University, and I hold a Masters in Double Bass Performance from the University of Michigan.  I have studied bass performance under respected professors Chris Buddo, Diana Gannett and Lawrence Angell, as well as conducting with Jeffrey Grogan, Michael Alexander and Stephen Heyde.

In my free time, I enjoy watching ice hockey, spending time with my husband and our dogs as well as training for triathlons.  I have completed twelve half Ironman races and three full Ironman races.  I am an avid sports fan; I follow the Dallas Stars, Columbous Blue Jackets, Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Rangers.
