Orchestra


High School orchestra is designed to emphasize the art of ensemble playing for stringed instruments and expand on the learning experience prior to a student’s enrollment in the class. Emphasis will be placed on musicality, the ensemble setting, and performance practice. Example performance venues might include chapel, a Christmas concert, spring concert, etc. Qualified students may be invited to participate in quartets or small ensembles outside the overall group.  

The honors level is for students who are participating in Orchestra for the third or fourth year in high school. Students are expected to serve as leaders and mentors to other students while advancing their own skills to a higher level.
