PIT ORCHESTRA
The West PIT ORCHESTRA plays for the school musicals.  The instrumentation of the group is dependent upon the show each year and may vary from year to year. Students are chosen for the group by the director.  Each year students that have been in the group before will be chosen and then the other parts will be filled In.  The group generally rehearses on Tuesdays after school from 2:30-4:00 PM in December, January and February and March until we get close to the show and then we have some Saturday rehearsals and then each night the week leading up to the opening of the show.  The Pit Orchestra at West has a tradition of excellence in their performances at West Musicals.
