It is with great pleasure that the CIM Preparatory Division announces the appointment of Keith Holliday as conductor of the Preparatory Orchestra starting in August, 2017. We look forward to Mr. Holliday bringing his vast experience and expertise to our orchestra program.

The repertoire of Preparatory Orchestra presents exciting technical and musical challenges for the advancing string player.

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.

The orchestra performs at the end of each semester with the other Preparatory division orchestras.
