Admission into the Chamber Orchestra is by audition only. Students who are interested in joining should speak with me. The students should be able to play NYSSMA level 4 or 5 in commanding fashion. They should also be proficient at reading level 4 music. It is rare that an instrumentalist can achieve this level without several years of private lessons.
The group plays music from the classical repertoire, pop music, film music, video game music and compositions by our own students! We perform several times during the school year and students are expected to perform at these events. Below is a listing of the usual performances we give during a typical school year.
