Preparatory Division Orchestras Concert Entertains

Thank you to all performers and parents who participated in the May 2 concert of the Preparatory Orchestra! You can still order recordings of the concert.


The Preparatory Orchestra, conducted by Donna Jelen, is the perfect place for intermediate string players looking to develop mature orchestral skills.

The repertoire of Preparatory Orchestra presents exciting technical and musical challenges for the advancing string player. Students in Preparatory Orchestra continue to develop essential orchestral skills while incorporating a wide variety of bowing, fingering and rhythmic patterns and exploring a full palette of musical expression.

Students should be comfortable sight reading and performing music in Major and minor keys up to four sharps or flats and should be adept with beat subdivisions and combinations. Students enrolled in Preparatory Orchestra are expected to participate in their school music programs. The orchestra performs at the end of each semester with the other Preparatory division orchestras.

Excessive tardiness and/or absences may result in a permanent change of seating.
