Orchestra Instruction

Orchestra instruction is available for 4th, 5th and 6th grade students. Students receive orchestra instruction once a week in like-instrument classes.  Students are pulled from their regular classroom for 45 minutes each week. They meet at the same time each week, depending on what instrument they have selected.  Orchestra classes meet during school hours one day per week, per the times listed below:

Orchestra Performances

All students perform in district concerts. These events are the culmination of weekly practices and give students the opportunity to share what they’ve learned. Without these experiences, students will not fully understand what it means to be part of orchestra and cannot make an educated decision about continuing the following year. Intermediate and advanced students will perform at winter and spring concerts. Beginning students will perform in March and in the spring. Details will be sent home as we get closer to concert dates.
