love to have you join the award winning Durham Orchestra in sixth grade!
Here's how to join:
1. Mark a "1" next to orchestra on your elective card. Don't worry if
you're not sure which instrument to mark--we'll figure that out at our
instrument selection night or when the orchestra director comes to test
students at your school later this spring (for school visits, the director
can ONLY test students who mark ORCHESTRA as their 1st CHOICE).
2. Call or email Mrs. Wharry at 972-350-1656 or firstname.lastname@example.org
ANY fifth grade student regardless of elective choice can come to be tested
for orchestra instruments )
Remember that you don't need any prior musical experience to join--we'll
teach you everything you need to know!
student can be successful on a stringed instrument! We have instrument
rental options through various vendors that will fit most everyone's budget
from $15/mo and/or $50/year depending on each instrument--when in doubt,
ask! We never want cost to prevent someone from enjoying a musical
instrument. Finally, remember that it is important to get into a music
ensemble in the sixth grade as it is next to impossible to join in the
seventh grade! If you forget what the different instruments sound
