What is Orchestra?

Message from the directors:

Thank you for your interest in the Daniell Music Department! We are not an after school program, but rather classes that your student will take during the school day during their connections time. You can choose from band, chorus or orchestra OR you can do both band and chorus or orchestra and chorus. If you are interested in chorus, please add that to your interest form. Please plan to attend the instrument test drive held in the music building on Wednesday 8/2 any time between 5-7 or Saturday 8/5 any time between 10-1 to test out and choose your instrument. Chorus will also be present to answer any questions. PLEASE NOTE: At the start of sixth grade, your student will still need to submit the orange connections form to officially enroll in the course(s)!
