Orchestra Classes Offered
This is the place to get started with a string instrument. You can choose Violin, Viola, Cello, or Bass, and learn to read music and make music like a BOSS!
This class is for those who have already passed through Beginning Orchestra or who have taken prior lessons on a string instrument. The Concert Orchestra gets more performing opportunities and participates in the District Intermediate Orchestra Festival.
