In Orchestra we are dedicated to enhancing and enriching the lives of the students and those around us, as well as gaining more appreciation for a variety of musical styles and how to see music everywhere, all around us.
 
We hope that you will join in this journey by playing, going to concerts, and making music part of who you are!
