Broken Arrow High School Orchestra


The high school orchestra program is dedicated to the development of musical excellence and leaders of the future. The senior high has two orchestra classes, symphony orchestra and chamber orchestra. The symphony orchestra is made up of string players in the 10th-12th grades. Chamber orchestra is an audition only class comprised of 10th-12th grade students.

The freshman academy also has two orchestra classes, string orchestra and concert orchestra. String orchestra focuses on the development of more advanced technique along with balance of sound. Concert orchestra begins to refine the advanced technique while increasing the level of repertoire. It is also an audition only class.
