Elementary Orchestra Recruitment Information

Things are a little different this school year, but the Elementary Orchestra program is moving forward!  For over 41 years, the Cumberland County Schools’ String Orchestra program has provided orchestra instruction to thousands of young musicians.  You are invited to consider your child’s participation in this exciting music program. Starting at the fifth-grade level, orchestra instruction in violin, viola, and cello are offered twice weekly during the school day.  Orchestra classes are also at the middle and high school levels. 

This school year, our elementary orchestra recruitment plan is as follows:

September 21 – 25, 2020 – Elementary “Virtual” School Visits

During this week, an orchestra teacher “virtually visited” all 5th-grade classrooms throughout Cumberland County Schools.  They explained what it is like to be a part of the orchestra program and learning to play a string instrument.  They also showed a video about the orchestra program that featured demonstrations of each instrument and an ensemble of our own Orchestra teachers playing in a quintet. If you decide to take advantage of this educational opportunity, please fill out the google form linked in the Parent Orchestra Registration Letter linked below by Friday, October 2, 2020.
