Not much else happening down here...
The orchestra has a tradition of musical excellence. But, it’s not all about the music. It’s about building character, responsibility, and building relationships. If all we focus on are numbers, then we’ll miss the bigger picture.
There are numerous ways you can help out your orchestra - whether it is by volunteering time, donating funds, serving on the Orchestra advisory board or just moral support at concerts!
Parents and students if you have not updated your e-mail and other information to ensure you receive the latest Orchestra news and information, please do so by logging on to CHARMS.
Uniforms Please do not cut the material on a uniform when having alterations done. You may fold the material, but not cut it. General guidelines about uniforms are in the Handbook in Charms (Page 8).
Also, when you have the article of clothing altered, please be sure that you wear shoes to mark the correct hem length.
Alterations may be done at home or any dry cleaning site or tailor. Some jackets may need to have the sleeves lengthened or shortened, and the same with pants.

A big Thanks! to Katherine Cuya ('15) for letting us use her fantastic photos on the Orchestra website.
Sadly, now that she has graduated, we are in desperate need of an official student photographer. If you are interested, or know someone who would volunteer their time to take photos of Orchestra events, contact our Orchestra Student President, Ethan Vargas.
