Instructor: Mr. Michael McNamara
Prerequisite: 1 credit Concert Orchestra and audition
Symphonic Orchestra is a nationally award winning, select group that performs collegiate and professional level repertoire. It is open to all string playing students in grades 10-12 who have participated in Concert Orchestra and passed an audition process. The focus of this class is for students to play advanced orchestral literature and be exposed to some of the iconic works from the most famous composers. It is a curricular course and meets as part of a student's normal schedule.
The orchestra performs at the winter and spring concerts, festivals, and throughout the community. It rehearses in class as just strings. On a few evenings per concert cycle, the orchestra combines with Symphonic Winds to create a full orchestra. There is some flexibility with this evening schedule, and arrangements for evening conflicts are worked out on a case by case basis between the student and director.
