The orchestra prepares and presents four major concert programs each year and performs additional pieces at various functions throughout the year..
All string students also have small group lessons once a week, which are often organized to form small ensembles during the Orchestra Fall Festival and the Spring Solo/Ensemble Contestseasons.
Select student volunteers perform at numerous community events throughout the year, usually as a string quartet. Student string quartets are self-directed; Mrs. Polashek mentors and coaches the quartets.
