ORCHESTRA / HONORS ORCHESTRA

Orchestral activities focus on the study of music through orchestral performance. All qualified orchestral string instrumentalists are assigned to this group. Wind and percussion players are selected on the basis of qualifying auditions by the instrumental music teacher. Honors Orchestra is for students who have successfully completed one year of high school orchestra and is an honors level performing course. Instruction in the honors level performing organizations will include foundations in music theory to prepare students for participation in Advanced Placement Music Theory.

Orchestra may be repeated for credit. Participation in this class is required for students to be eligible should they choose to participate in All County and All State organizations.
