Concert and Chamber Orchestras

Concert and Chamber Orchestras


 Concert Orchestra:
Concert Strings is offered to students with previous experience on a traditional string instrument. Continued emphasis is given to the development of musicianship skills, aural and technical facility (including bowing, fingering and reading music with good intonation and rhythm), through a large repertoire of string orchestra literature and technical studies. Student involvement in concert and performance activities will be part of the grading process for this course. Periodically there are special events, rehearsals or concerts during non-school hours. Participation in such activities is an essential extension of the requirements. Group lessons that focus on instrumental technique, solo literature and/or chamber literature may be included in this course offering.

 Chamber Orchestra:
Chamber Orchestra is a selected ensemble offered to students with advanced string experience. Its purpose is to study and perform chamber orchestra literature of varying styles from the archives of standard repertoire. Performance activities, including special events, rehearsals, and concerts all during non-school hours, are an essential part of the course and will be considered in the grading process. This course challenges music students interested in the finest concert performance and is strongly recommended for students who plan to major in music. Select winds, keyboard and/or percussion will be invited to join this ensemble on occasion as instrumentation dictates. The orchestra performs several concerts a year and participates in district and regional music festivals and all-state orchestra.  Chamber Orchestra students are strongly encouraged to enroll in Concert Orchestra.
