The Concert Orchestra is a performing group normally open to 7th and 8th grade students who have had at least two years of previous playing experience. Performance participation is required to be a member of this group. Some of these performances do NOT take place during the school day. During the course of the year, all eligible students will be able to participate in a Winter and Spring evening concert, concerts at elementary school, U.I.L. concert/sight-reading contest and solo/ensemble festival. Students may also audition for Region Orchestra in October if they so desire. Eligible students will have the opportunity to go on a “Spring Reward Trip”.
