Orchestral Studies

One semester of Beginning Strings in either 7th or 8th grade satisfies the Junior High fine arts requirement. A full range of additional Orchestra courses are available for students who wish to continue the experience learning to play a stringed instrument as part of an orchestral group.

Placement in these groups is determined by audition and evaluation by the orchestra director. Be aware that all groups have a performance requirement, and participation in concerts is part of a student’s grade.

Performance Wear for Orchestra Concerts

See individual class descriptions for specific requirements for each group. Proper attire is a mandatory part of participation, and class grade is dependant upon compliance.
