The Philharmonic Orchestra is comprised of strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion, with occasional harp and piano. This Orchestra is designed for intermediate level musicians with foundation skills of shifting (2nd up to 5th positions is expected) and orchestral bowing techniques that will enable string players to master repertoire comparable to the music taught in most high school programs in the area.
This program is ideal for all students from as young as 5th grade to 10th grade who wish to experience playing in a full orchestra setting and have a strong desire to better themselves as musicians. The Philharmonic Orchestra performs two to three concerts per season.
