Course Descriptions
 
 String Orchestra  The string orchestra program is offered for all students Grades 9 through 12. Students will expand on their knowledge of instrumental technique acquired in middle school while working in a large-ensemble setting. There are always plenty of opportunities for student-leadership (student-led sectional rehearsals) and performance opportunities. Orchestra meets during Period 8.
 Symphonic Orchestra  The Symphonic Orchestra includes members of the String Orchestra with additional woodwind, brass, and percussion students from the Band program. The Symphonic Orchestra performs standard symphonic literature. Band students interested in performing with Symphonic Orchestra should see Mr. Avidon for more information.
 Honors Orchestra The Honors Orchestra program is intended for those string students who excel at their instruments and are interested in further studies in more advanced literature. There is a GPA minimum students must maintain and attendance of rehearsals are mandatory. Open auditions will be held twice yearly at the start of September and end of December/early January. Honors Orchestra meets twice a week during Period 9 (Tuesday and Thursday) and once on rotation during Periods 1 through 4 on Thursday.
