Philharmonic Orchestra

Ms. Emily Pflaum, Director

This is a two-semester all year course designed for students in grade 10-12. Membership in the orchestra is open to all string players who have had previous instrumental training. Emphasis is on the development of good ensemble playing through the performance of standard orchestral repertoire. This class offers opportunities for the refinement of skills and the introduction and development of advanced skills through sequential study and an expanding breadth of string literature.

The Philharmonic Orchestra performs at various concerts, contests and festivals throughout the year. Attendance is required for all performances. Students will be expected to attend weekly small group lessons and practice their instrument outside of class. Members of this ensemble are encouraged to audition for Chamber Strings, and they may also participate in a tour once every two years.
