Symphony Orchestra -- Music Ensemble
Symphony Orchestra performs a variety of advanced literature written specifically for combined wind, string, and percussion instruments. Emphasis is placed on excellent music reading skills, playing technique, and independent work outside of scheduled rehearsals. Additional rehearsals will be scheduled outside the normal school day. Attendance at all rehearsals and performances is required. Students in the Honors Symphony Orchestra are encouraged to continue private instruction and to participate in local, district, regional, state, and national concert festivals and contests.
