The Junior Orchestra is open to any JS students who are currently taking regular private lessons on an orchestral instrument (violin, viola, cello, bass, flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bassoon, French horn, trumpet, trombone or tuba). Piano, guitar and recorder players will also be considered if the child has an adequate level of music reading ability. Our weekly rehearsal involves practicing age-appropriate orchestral pieces as well as technique and scale work where necessary. The Junior Orchestra performs regularly throughout the school year and serves as a preparatory ensemble for the combined Middle School/High School Orchestra
Grades: G3 and G4
