Orchestra introduces students to string ensemble performance techniques and the basics of their chosen instruments and basic musicianship through a variety of musical genres and historical periods.
Students are encouraged to participate in TPSMEA All-State ensembles, Region Orchestra, Solo/Ensemble contests, and the ISAS Arts Festival. The ensemble performs at the Fall Choir Concert, Lessons and Carols, various chapel services, and other ESD community events throughout the school year.
Students learn much more than how to play an instrument. They learn how to focus for extended periods of time,
how to work as a team, and how to be life-long learners.
