Honors Orchestra is an auditioned smaller "chamber orchestra" for talented and enthusiastic string orchestra musicians. The orchestra is open to any 6th, 7th or 8th grade string player who is willing and able to play more advanced music. Many of the members of the Honors Orchestra take private lessons, but that is not a requirement for participation.
The Honors Orchestra rehearsal schedule will be set in September (based upon preferences of students who audition), and may include early morning or after school rehearsal times. The Honors Orchestra performs as a separate entity at the Winter and Spring Concerts, and at some special events (for example, this year we may be going to the Mall of America in December, and we will likely “go on tour” in the Spring to visit some of the elementary schools as a recruiting effort).
Auditions will be held in mid-September, and rehearsals will begin the first week of October. Please consider joining the Valley View Honors Orchestra!
