The Upper School Orchestra provides an excellent opportunity for students to polish their musical skills through orchestral music. Students at an intermediate to advanced level on their instruments form this ensemble, bringing to life orchestral music from the great classics to innovative 21st Century repertoire. The orchestra performs alone, with the HB Singers and with instrumental ensembles from neighboring schools many times throughout the year.
The orchestra is also committed to sharing their music with the greater global community. Most students in the ensemble study privately as well. Private lessons are available after school hours through the Musical Arts Program.
Upper School Orchestra: Solid Black Blouse, Solid Black Skirt or Dress Pants, Black Dress Shoes.
Middle School: Solid White Blouse, Solid Black Skirt or Dress Pants, Black Dress Shoes.
Concerts are an integral part of the orchestra program. Please add these dates to your family’s calendar so you and your student can share in this wonderful experience.
All students should have an instrument in very good repair, all necessary accessories (reeds, rosin, swab, spare set of strings, etc), a portable music stand, metronome and tuner.
