In Orchestra, students learn to play a string instrument in a class orchestra, which involves playing with a clear tone, accurate rhythm, correct intonation, and musical expression. Playing in an orchestra teaches students to listen to all the other instruments section;s and playi in harmony with the rest of the group. Students also leaen to follow a conductor. We perform in two concerts and three contests each year, and we also provide "Atmosphere Music" for school events, such as the National Honor Society induction ceremony.
