Every note for the glory of God!
Students in grades 4 through 12 can participate in a string ensemble directed by Mrs. Lydia Most. Students will learn to play various genres of music as an ensemble, and perform at various school functions and community events.
Orchestra classes are divided as follows:
Welcome to all 4th and 5th graders who have never played a string instrument! Introductory orchestra will provide the solid technical foundation for future growth. Students will make their debut in a winter concert.
Junior High Orchestra
JH Orchestra has class 4 days a week. 5th graders who have taken Beginning Orchestra will join us part of the time. Technique will focus on on better tone production, intonation, beginning shifting and vibrato. Students who excel will have the opportunity to participate in the ACSI Music Festival's Orchestra in March by recommendation only. Students will also have the opportunity to perform at IEMA Solo/Ensemble Competions in the spring.
High School Orchestra
