Summer Orchestra Information

Attention all 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade families: Summer Orchestra dates are July 11-August 4.

We strongly encourage all beginning players to sign up to start playing this summer. We meet 4 days each week M-Th for 4 weeks, and you will learn so much in a very short amount of time! Even if you did not sign up for orchestra on the Music Interest Form in February, it’s not too late! Current 4th and 5th grade orchestra students: signing up for Summer Orchestra means it’s your turn to learn the national anthem and perform it at the Twins game on Tue, Sep 27! We can’t wait to see you this summer!
