Rock Orchestra

About Rock Orchestra

The Rock Orchestra, also known as Chamber Orchestra, is for students in high school and is an audition-only ensemble. It is recommended that students who audition are familiar with 3rd - 5th positions, be comfortable with keys in 3 sharps and 3 flats, and can create a beautiful tone with vibrato.

Our aim this year is to utilize electric violins and pedals to perform both well-known rock classics and more recent compositions. Music from artists like Coldplay, U2, Greenday, Led Zeppelin, and Muse among others will be performed.

With the Rock Orchestra, we represent both schools and play at various events including masses, formal events, holiday events, and are often featured at school performances. As such, classic string pieces will also be learned. More events to come in the schedule.
