Philharmonic Orchestra

Fine Arts

Course Description

This course is designed to refine the fundamental principles of musicianship presented at the junior high level. Through this course students will develop a better understanding of musical terminology, musical literature, playing technique, ensemble performance and concert etiquette. Students in Philharmonic Orchestra will participate in UIL Events such as Solo & Ensemble and Concert & Sightreading. In addition, Philharmonic Orchestra students may audition for All Region Orchestra. We hope that throughout this year students will be challenged to examine carefully their own musical ability and strive to improve upon the skills they have gained thus far. The ultimate goal of this course is to provide students with the skills needed to successfully participate in music throughout college and beyond.
