Orchestra I (Entry Level, Recommended for all Freshmen.)
Year-Long Course • Grades 9-10-11-12
Fulfills HS Visual/Perf. Arts or General Elective
This course is open to all interested string students who play the Violin, Viola, Cello or Bass. This class is designed to develop proficiency for orchestral musicians. The class will study intermediate concert literature for string orchestra and full orchestra. After-school and/or weekend rehearsals and performances are sometimes required.
The Agoura High Orchestra I class meets during the same period as our advanced Orchestra II course. This arrangement allows for students in Orchestra I to sometimes be combined with intermediate and advanced members of Orchestra II. Orchestra I members are welcome to partake in any music handed out to the Orchestra II class via a chair placement audition at the beginning of the year or through a playing test.
