Orchestra is an opportunity to study advanced small group ensemble and orchestral music. It is open to any student who plays a stringed instrument.

Orchestra offers students great variety and challenge in musical performance. Students study advanced instrumental technique, music reading and comprehension skills, independent musicianship, style and critical thinking skills, and gain a deeper understanding of small group ensemble music and orchestral music.

Students perform both in small group ensemble projects and as a larger group. Orchestra performs at local festivals and competitions and programs contain both classical and popular music.
