An audition only chamber orchestra comprised of up to sixteen students who play violin, viola, cello, or bass.This group performs a rigorous array of string orchestra literature ranging from Baroque to contemporary. This group combines with members of the band and choir for their winter masterwork performance. Over the course of the year students will form small ensembles(trios, quartets, etc.) for various gig and performance opportunities. Chamber Orchestra competes at regional festivals, performs at school concerts, and takes out-of-state trips. Seating and section leader auditions take place atthe beginning of each September. This is a highly selective and motivated group of string players.
