The string section of the orchestra meets daily during the school day as an accredited course and is comprised of students in grades nine through twelve. Students may enroll at the accelerated level (by audition) or college preparatory level. The full Symphony Orchestra meets once a week also during the school day. Winds, brass and percussion are accepted by audition. Orchestral literature of various time periods and genres are studied and performed on the winter and spring concerts. It has been tradition for the orchestra and chorus to perform together in a final selection on both concerts.
