Melanie Sorgi

I have been the Orchestra Director at Lopez Middle School since it opened in 2007. Prior to coming to Lopez, I was the orchestra director at Driscoll MS and before that, at Garner MS.  I started playing the violin when I was eight years old and studied privately through college. I received my bachelor's degree in Music Education from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois, and moved to San Antonio in 1982.

Currently I am a member of Texas Music Educators Association, Texas Orchestra Directors Association, and Mu Phi Omicron.  I am also serving on the Orchestra UIL PML Committee.

I'm married to Craig Sorgi, a member of the 1st violin section of the San Antonio Symphony.  We have two children: Colin is a violist in the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and is married to Jaclyn, who teaches violin/viola at the Peabody Preparatory School.  They have a newborn - our new granddaughter, Clara.  Cameron is a compositor at Luma VFX studio in Los Angeles.  His name is in the credits for many Marvel movies, most recently, Ant-Man and the Wasp!  We have two fur babies; a 2 year old golden retriever named Bravo and a cat, Padma.  In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, baking, reading, and watching TV.
