STRING ORCHESTRA






The West Orchestra is open to any student in Grades 9-12 that plays a string instrument (violin, viola, cello, string bass). No audition is required. The class meets one period a day and is a full credited course. The orchestra explores a wide repertoire of orchestral music and performs four school concerts per year. Other performances at festivals, competitions and civic events are also things the group does annually.

The STRING ENSEMBLE is a select group of players that meet as a co-curricular group and that ensemble is chosen by the director.  A few players are also needed each year for the PIT ORCHESTRA that plays for the school musical and those players are also chosen by the director as well.
