Orchestra ensembles are offered in the Lower, Middle and Upper Schools, with elective offerings in the Middle and Upper Schools. Students receive instruction on instrument technique, music theory, music literature and ear training through preparing for performances. All ensembles perform several times each year and participate in local festivals. All ensembles discover the beauty of God’s creation of music and how we can serve others by sharing it.
